Webster's Falls in Winter

Webster’s Falls in Winter

Hamilton Ontario is known as the city of waterfalls and perhaps one of the most stunning is Webster’s Falls. Located on the Niagara escarpment just above the town of Dundas, Webster’s Falls has become a very popular place with waterfall watchers, families, picnickers and anyone looking for a great day out.

This significant natural area contains two beautiful waterfalls: Webster’s and Tews Falls. Webster’s is a magnificent tiered waterfall and Tews, which towers at 41 metres, is only a few metres shorter than Niagara Falls. Both offer spectacular vistas of the gorge. A nature trail allows access to the Dundas Peak, which provides stunning views of Dundas and Hamilton. Other pathways passing through the park include the Bruce Trail, and a side-trail to historic Crook’s Hollow Conservation Area.

Webster’s Falls is located in Spencer Gorge Wilderness Area, and is part of the Niagara Escarpment, declared by the United Nations (UNESCO) as a World Biosphere Reserve. This unique geological formation contains two of Hamilton’s best waterfalls, one of its best lookouts, and hundreds of species of wildlife living in this Carolinian forest.

The park connects to the Bruce Trail and allows for some of the best hiking routes within an easy drive of Hamilton or Metropolitan Toronto.
