Lower Hopkins Cascade is a talus cascade. Its height is 6 metres (20 feet) and its crest width is 3.5 metres, or 11 feet. Located on a tributary of Borer’s Creek, (sometimes called Hopkins Creek) it is an especially impressive sight during seasonal storms and during the snow melt.
This waterfall was “found” by Paul Beneteau of the Bruce Trail Iroquoia Section and Joseph Hollick in 2006.
How to get there
Lower Hopkins Cascade is about a 10 minute walk from the Bruce Trail access on the west side of Valley Road in Dundas. Follow the Bruce Trail westerly to where the Trail crosses Hopkins Creek at a bridge. Follow the creek upstream about 100 metres. You can actually see it in the distance from this bridge- just look upstream. According to Joe Hollick, “It is rough, full of rocks, debris, trees, and branches.”
