  • I spent my youth visiting and climbing at Tews Falls, and spent time with the Tews family, that’s who the Falls is named after. It was always a place to just sit and listen to the trickle of water, an...  more »
  • I'm tempted to say I prefer this waterfall to Niagara Falls simply because there's no crowds, just beautiful surroundings. The falls is mighty tall and the escarpment mighty steep so watch out. The lo...  more »

  • Amazing ribbon waterfall, and is the tallest waterfall found in Hamilton, with a beautiful path that you walk on to get here and it is not disappointing! There are a few outlooks but the first one is the best. Easy to park and easy to get to. Little expensive at $10 for parking.
  • Beautiful place. I love coming here with my family. It's an easy walk even for young children. Just make sure you bring good walking shoes with some sort of grip. Cost of admission is 5 per person over the age of 5 and 10 dollars per vehicle. Price includes Websters falls admission and some lake I can't recall. You're also only 1.6km to Dundas peak. If you live in the Toronto area it's a great day trip.
  • Ten dollars per car plus five per person is usurious and will prevent a large portion of the community from seeing this natural beauty.
  • Really good views but parking is a problem on most of the falls in hamilton. Either they are limited or way to far from the spot. And if you park on the side of the road you will definitely get a ticket.
  • Good. Difficult to get a shot of the falls. No parking here you will have to park at webster falls. Got a parking ticket.
