Puddicombe Falls is a Talus Ribbon Cascade measuring 6 metres (20 feet) in height and 2 metres (6.5 feet) in crest width. It is the easternmost waterfall in Hamilton, located above the Bruce Trail east of Fifty Road, just before Hamilton’s eastern boundary on a tributary of Fifty Creek.
Puddicombe Falls was “discovered” by Jody Tait of the Hamilton Conservation Authority and Joe Hollick in 2007 when they were out doing GPS on other waterfalls in the area. It is named after the Puddicombe family, who have owned the adjacent lands for over two hundred years.
How to get there
What is unique to the Bruce Trail at this location is that Puddicombe has created a side trail from the Bruce Trail to their farm and winery and they have erected a sign on the Bruce Trail indicating this. So if you are hiking the Bruce Trail and need a snack or drink, follow this side trail. I have attached a photo of the sign situated on the Bruce Trail. Puddicombe Falls is located east of this sign.
