There are in the neighourhood of 70 waterfalls along the Niagara Escarpment, located between Niagara Falls and Tobermory, whose formation was influenced by the variety of geological conditions found along the escarpment. The Bruce Trail passes by many of these waterfalls.
Some of the waterfalls are cascading falls and some have multiple falls, upper, middle and lower falls. When you encounter any of these waterfalls while travelling along the trails, you will have some amazing sights that will definitely turn your walk into a very special one.
In this series of notes we describe how waterfalls are formed and explain how we classify the falls on this site. In addition we have developed a rating system for waterfalls that we have applied to each waterfall. The three criteria used in the ratings are also outlined.
