  • The water just cascades so gently and then splashes with a steady roar, so serene. Pathways are slippery and muddy in the spring thaw, so boots are a necessity. Guess some people thought sneakers were...  more »
  • Parking here needs to be addressed! (If you've never been here, it's worth the experience. After that, nope). I agree that the city should collect money from visitors using this maintained park, and I...  more »
  • Since I live very close to this beautiful place, I come here very frequently (1-3x a week). I am able to walk over from my place. I never get tired of the falls view! Seems like I am not the only one....  more »
  • I love Tews falls - one of the best hiking spots I frequently go to every season. You can go hiking hear in the Fall/Winter/Summer/Spring. No matter the season it is always beautiful to go hiking here. Wonderful spots of photographers and instagrammers alike.
  • Ontario is full of beautiful places to see but there is one place you can go and see probably 6-7 waterfalls in a day,Hamilton/Dundas area.Following the Niagra Escarpment you will find numerous waterfalls and cascades.The bruce trail is something to look up on google.Tews falls is one of them!Ancient glacial water meltdown caused tremendous bowl shaped pits where water once raged through giving you breathetaking sights of the layers of rock and dirt and sediment that we walk over everyday!This place takes you back in time.I believe it is only about 30 feet shorter than Niagra falls so even if there isn't a huge run off it is still worth seeing!There is a trail that you can follow to get to the bottom of the falls which I'm sure is part of the bruce trail.It is a bit of a trek through some pretty rough terrain with steep slopes.I made it to the bottom no problem and well worth it,the view when looking up is unbelievable!great for the family if you stay on the upper paths becsuse here you can actually do a 3 for 1.Tews Falls,Dundas peak and Webster's Falls are all connected like a boomerang.parking at Tews and Websters falls.This is an amazing day trip for the family!Have fun!
  • Short walk from parking lot and great view. Visiting during weekdays recommended. :)
  • Nice water fall... But no parking spots over the weekend....and all lots are full... And the security is not letting any one in even though there are some parking spots available.
  • Check it out, take advantage of well shaded trails to Dundas Peak & Webster's Falls Beautiful valley scenery in all seasons
