Spencer Gorge in Fall

Tew's Falls and Webster Falls pour water over the edge of the Niagara Escarpment in Hamilton. Walking the Bruce Trail and various side trails is a delight in fall time, full of visitors checking out the gorge cut into the shale and limestone of the escarpment and standing on Dundas Peak (picture at top) looking over the city of Hamilton.

The City of Hamilton's tallest waterfall is Tew's Falls at 41 metres high fed by Logie's Creek. There are two viewing platforms looking onto the ribbon waterfall located in Greensville, Ontario.

Webster Falls

Webster Falls is 22m high curtain waterfall with a large park attached to the falls. The steps to the base of the falls is closed off by fences.

The trail between the two falls are closed so you have to drive to each parking lots if you want to see both areas. The owners of the land in between the falls got tired of the people going off trail and decided to shut down the crossing. Apparently the Hamilton Conservation Area is attempting to expropriate the land so the trail can be re-established in the future. Parking is $10 per vehicle and is good for both Tew's and Webster Falls same day parking but please note that you can't park on summer weekends from May 12 to October 28. You will have to take the shuttle bus between Christie Lake Conservation Area and the park to visit the conservation area.

See more waterfalls and Spencer Gorge after the jump.
