This Conservation Area is home to many local families on the weekend where it can get quite busy. There are several places to view the falls and plenty of space for fun and picnicking.

I got a huge gash on my forehead from a rock rolling and leaping down from the mountain. There were loose rocks everywhere!! Someone yelled rock and it seemed to be going on a predictable downward roll until it hit a branch and jumped on to my face. 7 stitches in my forehead and a cut on my lip and... More

This is a hidden gem in hamilton. An amazing view over Dundas valley from the top and just a 20 minute hike up the trail is another gorgeous falls

Think twice before heading to Webster's Falls and Tew's Falls: the city of Hamilton (ON) and the local conservation charge CAD 10 per car PLUS CAD 5 per person, so a couple pays $20 and a family of four - $30. No National or State Park in N America employs such an inflated fee structure. The place is well maintained... More

Drove nearly 2.5hrs to get to this beautiful place with myself and 2 kids. It cost a total of $25 which includes parking $10 and each person was $5. Best $25 I have spent in a very long time. We spent nearly 4hrs hiking, exploring and taking in every second of so much beauty. It was a bit crowded at... More

Although the stairs to Webster Falls were closed, we did the walk anyway. They should really open it up again because it was SO beautiful. Perhaps more amazing because there were so few people. It was a bit soggy/muddy in spots on the trail, but I just could not stop gaping at nature as we walked beside Spencer Creek. Even... More

Did a little hike with the wife here... beautiful waterfalls. Well maintained paths. Some nice boards with info regarding the history of the area with respect to the early mills that once dotted the landscape... one such Mill, was located in the spot where a cobblestone bridge now sits (above the falls). Definitely Worth a look. Only complaint, Parking is... More
