The Niagara Escarpment (which is an UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve) runs through the entire length of Hamilton. The result of this is that there are so many waterfalls in this city, in fact over 100 have been found!
Some of the best ones to visit are: Great Falls, Borer's Falls, Tews Falls, Webster's Falls, Sherman Falls, Tiffany Falls, Canterbury Falls, Darnley Cascade, Progreston Falls, Albion Falls, Billy Monkley Cascade, Hermitage Cascade, Buttermilk Falls, Felker's Falls, Chedoke Falls, Billy Green Falls and dozens more!
Many of these waterfalls you can actually walk in behind if you do not mind getting a bit wet!
I have visited many of these waterfalls in more than one season and each visit in a different season evokes a different experience!
Happy waterfalling!

Visiting Candian friends with friends form home, I stayed with a friend in the Dundas section of Hamilton for a week.

The Canadian friend is a great walker and trekker. Together, we visited two of the best waterfalls in the area. Webster's Falls one afternoon and Tews Falls and part of the Niagara Escarpment one morning. Both waterfalls are in Dundas.

Webster’s Falls is very popular with artists. During our visit, there was a group of them at work.

Hamilton bills itself as the Waterfall Capital of the World. There are over 100 waterfalls in the Hamilton area.

From what the locals say, the two waterfalls I visited are the easiest to access, the most popular, and the most spectacular.

I rate the Waterfalls of Hamilton at 5.0.

I recommend adding Webster's Falls and Tews Falls to an itinerary in the Hamilton area.

I plan to return to see more of the waterfalls in that area.

There are so many amazing waterfalls in the Hamilton area that it can be tough to decide which ones to visit. As someone who routinely encounters lost tourists in Red Hill valley who are looking for Albion falls, I thought I'd offer some much needed advice. Skip it. Seriously, go somewhere else. Anywhere else. Albion falls (and the nearby Buttermilk falls for that matter) would be nice, but they're right by the road and almost impossible to get a good view of without doing something very stupid and/or dangerous. Police and fire department rescues happen regularly, and multiple people die here EVERY SINGLE YEAR. It's at best worth a quick 5-minute visit. Instead, try the nearby Felkers falls for a better location and a better view. A little further east, the Devil's punch bowl (my favourite) is fantastic for viewing from both the top and bottom (requires a certain degree of fitness to climb up/down the trail). In the west end, Webster's and Tews falls are both really pretty but way too busy (never visit on a weekend or holiday), and Sherman Falls, Mill Falls and Tiffany Falls are all great alternatives.

There are several reasons why I rated this sight so low: 1. We parked at Tews falls and paid the 10 dollars - only to find no washroom facilities. (yes there were some portoilets at Webster falls, 20 min. walk away, no water though) 2. There is hardly any water in the river so the falls are nearly dry presently. 3. The stairs to the bottom of Webster falls and several areas are leading to the river are fenced off and not accessible - which leaves us without the most enjoyable viewing spots so it is kind of pointless. I would not return till the stairs are open.

My husband and I were looking for a day trip around the Hamilton area, having explored rattlesnake point and several conservation areas, we decided to have a look at the waterfalls. Our expectations remained low of what we would find but I must tell you we were more than surprised, we were in fact in awe. We had planned on visiting three of them, Albion Falls, Tiffany Falls and The Devils Punch Bowl. We have seen them summer and winter equally amazing. The Devils punch bowl we decided to walk down to the bottom of it, the walk down is not that easy but well worth it if you can do it.

I stopped in Hamilton on the way back from Niagara Falls. Hamilton Falls are far smaller but the forest location made them interested. So here it comes: you can't park anyway near attractions. Car park is 3-4 miles away, but you have no choice. Parking $10 +$5 for entrance, pricy. Webster Fall is completely waste of time. The access was fenced up, so you can see only top of the fall. Very disappointing! Tew's Fall absolutely great. Easy access with the great view. You can follow a number of easy trials. So peaceful and calming.

Very Disappointing, i hope next time the organization can update info on the web regarding the status of steps to falls. The steps to the falls was closed due to public safety. What the point going to see the falls from such a height. Just a waste of time. Only when you are about to pay for parking which is $10 they let you know that the steps to the falls in closed. We enjoyed the 15 min trekking from the Webster falls to Tew falls. You get a great view of the TEW falls from about 100 feet height. There is not much water to call it falls.I'm very surprised to see that the walk to the TEW falls from webster was very dangerous with no barriers in some places. I see no reason why the steps to falls was closed. The place in only good for a picnic and they don't even allow barbeque either. I could have driven to Niagara falls for a better view from the top than this one. This place is only worth visiting if the steps to the falls is open fro public, please call the authorities before hitting the gas.
