“Beautiful !”

Spencer Gorge Conservation Area
Ranked #2 of 17 things to do in Dundas
Attraction details
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Excellent conservation area with 2 amazing waterfalls, one of them (Tews) is about 40 m high and looks like a tropical waterfall :) . Amazing trail with stunning views of the gorge, it looks like a different world once you start hiking the trail. It has connections with Bruce Trail, and 2 parking slots, one on each fall. Also it has lookouts each the falls. Perfect for wedding photos, to relax or to exercise. The access to the bottom of Webster fall is still closed, but you can view it from the upper lookout. Recommended for a great day trip. Entrance fee $10 . (Good for both waterfalls)

Great walk between the Tews and Webster's Falls in spring.

Access to bottom of Webster's Falls is blocked, but some people still got there.

There must have jumped the fence...

The Spencer Gorge area is a beautiful spot to go and hike around a bit, or just to relax and spend the afternoon. The waterfall is absolutely beautiful and the surroundings just add to the serenity. Definitely one of the must sees in the Hamilton area.

I used to love going here but last year they closed the bottom of the fall off indefinitely. Apparently their City of Waterfalls campaign worked a bit too well and the Eco system was being damaged as well as too much wear and tear on the stairs.
It really lost its appeal for me not being able to play under the falls anymore with the kids or the dog. :(

A great place to spend the day! Two beautiful waterfalls, and after a long hike, a beautiful view of the escarpment, the west end of the city and Dundas from Dundas Peak.

Relics of the old grist mill and the family that operatedi it remain.

Parts of the trail to the peak are a little tricky, but not overwhelming. My dog always sleeps well for a few days after spending the day hiking here!
