I have not spent much time in Hamilton, only a day at the Botanical Gardens and another day hiking around Spencer Gorge Conservation Area, to see two fabulous waterfalls and a great lookout over the Dundas Valley.

Hamilton is located only 57 kms southwest of Toronto, and these waterfalls are accessed only a few kms north of Hamilton.

Dundas, just north of Hamilton

To get to the waterfalls, I had to drive through the lovely town of Dundas. It has a charming main street with well preserved period buildings.

    Love your Waterfalls pictures, especially Tews Falls. Our Toronto VT meeting is now over & a great time was had by all. I still don't care much for Toronto but it was fun meeting so many nice people. Hugs. Lori.
