Dewitt Falls is a 7-metre-high (23 ft) complex ribbon cascade waterfall found in Stoney Creek, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Nearby attractions include Bruce Trail, Dofasco 2000 Trail, Battlefield House Museum, Devil's Punch Bowl, Devil's Punch Bowl Conservation Area, and the Erland Lee House Museum.


From QEW take the Fruitland Road exit and follow this road south and turn right onto Highway 8. Turn left onto Dewitt Road and travel up the Escarpment until the railway. The waterfall is on the left beside Dewitt Road at the railway.

When you approach the railway crossing listen for trains even though it is a controlled access track and has lights. Pull to the left side of the road as you cross the tracks and try to do so as close to a 90 degree angle as possible as the transition can be a very bumpy one. After crossing the tracks pull to the left side and the falls are just up a few feet on the left side of the roadway. For safety sake engage your parking brake and turn your wheels to the left.
