Borer’s Falls Conservation Area is home to Borer’s Creek, which flows over the Niagara Escarpment in an impressive 15 m plunge. The falls are also known as Rock Chapel falls: the impressive force provided power for the Rock Chapel Village Sawmill which was run by the Borer family for over a century. Today, these falls are fast-flowing in the spring and form stunning ice formations in the winter. In fact, this is a very popular ice climbing destination! It is also a popular spot to walk with your four-legged friend. The 4.5 km of well-maintained trails offer beautiful views of the city of Hamilton and surrounding land. There is wheelchair access to the Bruce South Trail and ideal picnicking spots along the way.
