  • The people have to be shuttled in too many people. Ten dollars a car and five dollars a person. You use to be able to walk from Webster s to Tew falls but someone has put up privicey fence soooo you h...  more »
  • There is 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.  more »
  • The falls itself is nothing special - small amounts of water and not a truly high drop. However; the neat thing about it; is that you can walk up right to the actual falls both above and below. Can wa...  more »

  • Spectacular water fall, almost as tall as Niagara and more of an outback charm to it. Very well maintained trail and just a short walk from the main parking lot. Definitely worth the 10 dollar parking fee, as it goes towards keeping this place accessible. It's a shame you can't go to the gorge, but understandable due to the volume of tourism.
  • Based on my experience I give it 4 stars but I had to be naughty to get that experience. Went on a weekday and got a parking spot for 10 dollars, so I am taking off a star. Wasn't charged the extra 5 dollars per person for some reason, maybe because it was a weekday. Things to know: there is a free way in. (I wont pay again.) Locals do not pay either, they just wait till the late afternoon or use an old a trail route. There are at least three points at which you can get to trails, that park claims do not exist. These trails can take you into the bottom of the gorge, the base of the waterfalls, and extra waterfalls that if you don't go into the gorge you will never see. Only one of the ways down is without risk, but comes with a long walk. The others are not for the faint of heart. Some being more risky and challenging then others. If I wasn't able to find my way down and they charged me another 5 dollars i would not recommend Tews Falls and give it only one star as without the gorge, plus the cost it would be a total disappointing rip-off.
  • Part of the whole Spencer gorge experience. Beautiful all year, even in winter with water pouring into a chimney of ice. Spring water flow is best, fall leaves are most picturesque. Don't forget the Peak and Webster's falls too.
  • It's OK. No easy parking at the falls and you have to park at an antique store a few mins away and take a shuttle there. It's $10 per person. Trail signs are misleading - it seems as if you can walk to Webster Falls from there but you go a bit down the trail only to find out it gets cut off by a private property and you had to take the shuttle to a separate entrance. Views are decent and the Tews Falls trail links to Dundas Peak, which is pretty cool. No access to falls though.
  • Very long trail, rather beautiful. Be careful for trail abruptly ends going towards lower tews falls and at that point you're like 6k from where you started and the climb back up the mountain is rather difficult unless you're a seasoned hiker. There is no alternative route further down the train tracks.
