Dyment Falls is a Complex Ribbon Falls with several vertical sections. It measures 15.7 metres in height (51 feet) and has a crest width of 4 metres (13 feet). Dymant Falls experiences its strongest flow during seasonal storms and after the snow melt.
It source is believed to be a tributary of the Spencer Creek which drains the roadside ditches of Sydenham Road and the Dyment farms across the road, hence the name, Dyment Falls.
Dyment Falls was “discovered” by Dr. Michael Brand, a director of the Giant’s Rib Discovery Centre (which promotes awareness of the Niagara Escarpment) in Spring 2007.
Dyment Falls is featured on the “WATERFALLS OF HAMILTON SPRING” poster.
How to get there
To reach it, park at the lookout at the top of the Sydenham Rd. overlooking Dundas. Then walk up Sydenham Rd. on the escarpment side about 60 m to the Bruce Trail side trail. This side trail actually goes down the escarpment beside the waterfall giving you access to both the top and bottom.
