If you’re looking for a great fall hike near Toronto, put your boots on – we’ve got the place.
DeCew Falls is located just 15 minutes south of Saint Catharines, or about 1.5 hours from Toronto (on a good traffic day).
There is both an upper and lower falls for you to discover as well as the chance to hit up the Bruce Trail for a beautiful hike through falling leaves. Of course, it’s the waterfalls you’re going to want to make a point of seeing the most though.
The upper DeCew falls is a 22-metre plunge waterfall while the lower is a smaller 8-metre cascade variety, both of which are stunning in their own way. Especially in your Instagram feed.
Pro tip: you can actually scramble down into the gorge further along the trail (be careful, it’s steep and slippery!) to get up close to the upper falls and even step behind them.
Throw in an adorable old mill and a beautiful fall day and this could be the perfect autumn afternoon road trip.
Like we said, put your boots on and get going.
