Springhill Falls is a horsetail ribbon
cascade. The water originates from surface runoff collecting
into a swale or small depression on the Springhill property
at the top of King St. (Hwy 8) in Greensville above Dundas
and flowing over the Niagara Escarpment adjacent to the shoulder
of Hwy 8. Its height is
5 metres (16 ft.) and its crest width is 1 metre (3 ft.).
Springhill Falls was "discovered" in November 2006 by
Elizabeth Berestecki (formerly of the Hamilton Conservation
Authority) and Joe Hollick when they were out doing measurements
and GPS locations on
How to get there
The Fall can be seen when driving up Hwy
8 from Dundas near the top of the escarpment.
