Chasing Waterfalls: Louth Falls

DSC_0251This summer we decided to explore our own backyard, the beautiful Niagara region. Having seen so much of the world, it was a nice change of pace to sit back and enjoy the nature that surrounds us at home (much less time spent in an airplane this way!).

Louth Waterfall is located in the Louth Conservation Area in Lincoln Ontario. Louth is a cascade falls situated on the 16 mile creek. You can access this falls from the QEW.

-Exit the QEW at Jordan Rd.

-Continue on Jordan Rd. RR 26. until King St.

-Turn left on King St. RR 81

-Take the next right at Seventeenth St.

-Turn left at Bruce Trail Staff Ave.

-There is a small parking lot on the left, but it is fairly wooded so drive slowly so you don’t miss it!


On our first visit here we were treated to an epic shower, in the form of a torrential downpour. For our second visit, we were able to climb down to the base of the falls and have a second shower, but this time from the falls.


The climb down to the base of this waterfall is very difficult, potentially the most difficult we have encountered compounded by the fact that it has just rained.

The waterway leading to the crest of the falls is a really neat place to explore, as well as the surrounding hiking trains (including the Bruce Trail).


Here is a video we made at Louth waterfalls in Louth Conservation area.
