Upper Decew Falls ,St. Catharines ,Niagara Region, Ontario, Canada



Upper Decew Falls is located adjecent to  2714 Decew Rd in St. Catharines, ON L2R 6P7, Canada .
The western stretch of DeCew Road in St Catharines is the perfect place for waterfall lovers to go and explore.
This area is home to two main waterfalls - Upper DeCew Falls, a large 22 metre plunge waterfall, and Lower DeCew Falls, a smaller 25 foot steep cascade waterfall. With its picturesque surroundings including Morningstar Mill (a restored water-powered mill) and the Bruce Trail, it is a great place to go and spend an afternoon.

Upper DeCew Falls is a pretty plunge waterfall, with water flowing from the upper reaches of the Twelve Mile Creek. It can be viewed from above, next to the Morningstar Mill, with the area around the falls protected by a chain fence for your safety, making it suitable for children and the elderly to visit.
This is another of the many Niagara Escarpment Waterfalls.At the top of the Falls is the Morningstar Mill, an old mill that is being restored. The mill is operational, and they grind flour somedays. They are also repairing the saw mill located at the site.
From the Mill, the Bruce Trail follows the north side of the rim ( At this point the trail looks like it heads straight into somebody's house.) You have to get into the gorge to get really nice views of the falls. There are two popular ways into the gorge: the long way, and the short way.
For the long way, follow the Bruce Trail until the trail forks. The Bruce trail goes to the right, and the "trail" into the gorge continues straight. This is not a maintained trail, and it is a bit steep, but it is not too hard. Unfortunately it is a long hike back up the gorge, and the "trail" is very difficult in places. One advantage is that you will pass the Lower Decew Falls on the way.
