A perfect place for hiking for every taste. Great falls, amazing views. Million of places to take stunning photos. The fees are a little bit high, but considering how maintain is and everything else, it isn't too much.

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

BE AWARE: that the trail connecting Webster Falls and Tew Falls is closed due to private landowner fencing off property! In order to access both falls you will have to drive to each. Tew Falls I think is great for hiking and the elevated views. Fantastic photo opportunities and decent hiking trails. Webster Falls seems like a great area to... More

Falls were pretty but expensive outing for an hour. It costs too much to park, in addition to an entrance fee. Would not recommend it. Felt gouged.

Cost for parking in ten dollars in addition to $5/person entrance fee. It cost two of us $20 to enter at Tews falls. We were not told about the closure of the trail to Webster falls. We ended up driving to it. Tews falls was nice and the hike to Dundas peak was fun. It got more crowded around noon.... More
