McMaster University recognizes that the University and surrounding Hamilton area, including their nature spaces, are situated on traditional territories shared between the Haudenosaunee confederacy and Anishnaabe nations. These lands are protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum belt. The wampum uses the symbolism of a dish to represent the territory, and one spoon to represent that the people are to share the resources of the land and only take what they need.

Sherman Falls

Bruce Trail Conservancy

Sherman Falls lies within private lands close to the Hamilton Conservation Authority’s Dundas Valley Conservation Area and Tiffany Falls Conservation Area. Just off the side of the road, a trail leads into a small tree-covered gorge that is home to Sherman Falls. Sherman Falls is a 55″ tall ribbon falls that has a terrace midway up. It’s a refreshing spot in the summer where people often go to soak in the water at the bottom of the falls.

Sherman Falls is also conveniently linked with the Bruce Trail. Come out and enjoy the great outdoors!

Please note: Sherman Falls is on private property and we ask all visitors to appreciate the Falls respectfully. Please do not attempt to climb the Falls, and take out all garbage you bring in with you.
