Hilton Falls Trail, Hilton Falls Conservation Area, Milton ON
This trail is about 4km long, easy, mostly flat loop trail that leads to Hilton Falls. Aside from the falls there is also the old mills ruins which you can see from the viewing platform at the falls. Highly recommend this one the falls are beautiful in the snow. Reservations required, click here

Tiffany Falls and Sherman Falls, Ancaster ON
You can do these falls separately if you didn’t want to do the entire 3-4km in and out hike. You can park at Tiffany Falls Conservation Area on Wilson St in Ancaster and hike the 5 minute trail to the falls. From there you can follow the Bruce Trail to Sherman Falls which, there and back is about 3.5 kms. Or you could drive to Sherman Falls, street parking at Lions Club Rd & Old Dundas Rd. It’s also a short 5 minute hike from the street to the falls. Both falls are beautiful and if you go while it’s frozen you’ll see the ice climbers doing their thing at Tiffany Falls.
