Perhaps the most scenic of Hamilton’s natural areas, Spencer Gorge spans the escarpment and contains two of Hamilton’s most well-known waterfalls: Webster’s and Tews Falls. Tews Fall is the tallest waterfall in Hamilton and, at 41 meters high, is only a few meters shorter than Niagara Falls. In comparison, Webster’s fall is possibly one of Hamilton’s most visited and most beautiful waterfalls and is contained in a gorgeous park area that can be accessed through the same trails as Dundas Peak.
There is no walking trail access between Webster and Tew’s.
Dundas Peak is another cliffside viewpoint that highlights the expanse of the Gorge. With views of Hamilton, Dundas, and Spencer Gorge it is a sight everyone must see!
Please note as Spencer Gorge becomes more popular, increasing pressure is being put on the parking areas and surrounding community. Please be aware that bylaw officers will be patrolling the community areas during busy times in the area and you may be ticketed if you are parked illegally.
