  • Great park, very cool waterfall. just sucks that you have to pay for parking and also pay to get in. but did have a change to run the kids around after being stuck in the car for a little bit
  • Nice views. Trail is a bit treacherous in spots and is not for novice hikers by themselves. Water flow over falls is more plentiful in spring months. Views of fall colours on the trees are the best in southern Ontario. Parking is limited and expensive.
  • One of my favourite waterfalls in the Hamilton area.. I read somewhere that it's only 2 meters shorted than Niagara Falls?? Not sure if this is true but it is pretty high up. Before it hits the bottom it turns to midst because it's so tall. Definitely a must see in the Hamilton area!!
  • Check it out, take advantage of well shaded trails to Dundas Peak & Webster's Falls Beautiful valley scenery in all seasons
  • It is a great spot.. Not sure if I agree with the cost of admission or cost of parking to walk a park and see the falls in a distance..might as well go to Niagara Falls
