Steven’s Falls is a Complex Classic Cascade. Its total height is 8.5 metres ( 27.75 feet) and its width is 5 metres (16 feet). It is located on a tributary of the Spring Creek and normally has water flowing year round.
Although Steven’s Falls is located on Hamilton Conservation Authority lands, access to it is very difficult as there is no trail.
How to get there
The waterfall is located south of Hwy # 8 on the east side of Middletown Road between #154 and 144. The HCA has a 20 foot (6.6 metre) wide right-of-way between 154 and 144 (where the hydro line is located). Steven’s Falls is about 1,700 ft. away through the bushes and well past the end of the hydro line.
The following access was recommended by the local property owners: parking is available 2.2 km down at the local churches. Walk to the designated area and up the steep hillside from the roadside. Follow the hydro line in and please note the conservation only owns 6.6 meters of right away to the left hand side of the hydro lines, do not walk off this right a way as you will be on private property otherwise. This is not a clear path and you will be bush walking through thorns, over downed trees and climbing rocks. There is not a maintained path and it’s a difficult walk in if you stay on the right a way. Please take note of the personal property lines and fence line once you get to the field area. You are to stay to the left of the fence line when facing into the falls and not walk through the farmers field.
PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE GARBAGE. Anything you take in should be taken out with you. People have been leaving Tim Hortons cups and bags from lunches – this is not acceptable behaviour and looks poorly on the waterfall community.
