Waterfalls of Ontario, Online Since 1999
This web site started as 'Waterfalls of Southern Ontario' in 1999. By 2002 it had morphed into 'Waterfalls of Ontario' and has been hosted as waterfallsofontario.com
You can see early versions of this web site from 2003
This was the first web site to inventory and map
waterfalls for visiting in Ontario. Many placeholder names were suggested for unnamed waterfalls by myself or by readers like you. Some of these names are now used as common names by other websites.
The Waterfalls of Ontario book
was first published by Firefly Books
in 2003. Second and third editions were published in 2011 and 2018, respectively.
The Ontario Waterfall Community
With help from people like you, we have created a large community of hobbyists! You can read their stories!
Thousands of tips, directions, stories and photos have been contributed by readers / users / Facebook group members. Their collective knowledge was provided to make this project a success.
The 'Waterfalls of Ontario' Facebook Group
was started in 2011 and had reached 37,000 members by the end of 2021.
You can read more about the history of waterfalling in Ontario
