Grand Cascade is a Talus Ribbon Cascade.
Its height is 4 metres (13 feet) and its width is 1 metre (3 feet).
Located on a tributary of Fifty Creek, it
experiences stronger flow during peak storm events and after
the winter snow melt.
Grand Cascade was on Stephen Head's list from about 2002
as a possible waterfall site. Joe Hollick also visited
it in 2004 and 2005 on Stephen's recommendation, but
he also found it dry. In 2007 David Wootton was the first
to photograph it with water flowing.
Joe Hollick also was
able to photograph it with water flowing in both 2007 and
2008. Grand Cascade was added to the Hamilton Waterfall list in 2007.
Grand Cascade is located on the south side of the Bruce
Trail about a 15 minute walk west of Fifty Road. See attached
