East Hamilton Mountain
First hike the Peter Street Trail to enjoy the views of the Felker’s Falls ravine from above and below, a hidden treasure on the escarpment. From the parking lot, head west on the footpath and follow the Bruce Trail white flashes along the escarpment’s edge. This will lead you to Glendale Falls and the Red Hill Valley Parkway. You can return to Felker’s Falls, or, if more adventurous, continue on the Bruce Trail to Mud Street, Albion and Buttermilk Falls.
Felker’s Falls is a 22 metre high ribbon waterfall. The Felker’s Falls Escarpment Valley is a small bedrock gorge cut into the face of the 725 km long Niagara Escarpment.
The Felker family owned and farmed the property on which the waterfall is located for more than 140 years.

Tip:Stay on the trails. A waterfall gorge is especially sensitive. There are nationally, provincially and locally rare species of plants and animals near many waterfalls. Some of the most significant are the Red Mulberry, Acadian Flycatcher, Jefferson Salamander and the Louisiana Waterthrush.
