Felker's Falls is a 22-metre-high (72 ft) ribbon-style waterfall found at the Felker's Falls Conservation Area, a small park within a subdivision in Stoney Creek in East Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.[1] The Bruce Trail passes by the top of the falls and from there you get a clear view of lower Stoney Creek and Lake Ontario.[2]

Nearby attractions include the Bruce Trail, Little Davis Falls, Battlefield House Museum. Felker's Falls Conservation Area is a small park that lies between the Devil's Punch Bowl (east) and King's Forest Golf Course and Park (west).[3] This area is also much more accessible now that the trail has been paved.

Directions[edit]

By car, exit the QEW on Centennial Parkway and drive south. Go right onto Mud Street, and then turn right again at Paramount Drive. Go right once again onto Ackland Street, which leads to the parking lot.[4]
