Guess what! They've named a new side trail off the Bruce Trail in my honour! You can now hike the Stew Hilts Side Trail in to see a previously secret waterfall. [There, I've given away my real name.] And to top that, this is an as yet un-named waterfall as far as we know, so someone suggested that we call it 'Hilts Falls'. Imagine having a waterfall named after you!
My volunteer job in past years has been to scout out new properties acquired by the Bruce trail Conservancy, find the survey markers, and assess the property. When I saw this falls, not visible from the trail, I knew we had to find a way to get there.
For any local reader, you hike south on the Bruce Trail from Johnson's Sideroad, 3rd road south of Hutchison's Corners, for about 10 minutes and you'll see the blue sign on your left. Allow about an hour total time, in and out. Small parking lot if on the north side of the road, in the corner of the hayfield.
