Spencer Gorge Conservation Area, Hamilton: 2 reviews and 3 photos
From the escarpment to the forested depths of the gorge below, the Spencer Gorge/Webster's Falls Conservation Area exhibits the physical features that attract hikers, trekkers, nature lovers and photographers.
The grounds within the park are used for picnic by people from Wentworth County and by those from Greater Toronto Area and other neighbourhoods. We were 4 families on a day long hiking and picnic trip. We also started by first having a pre-noon BBQ.
However, our objective was to explore this significant natural area that has many kilometers of hiking trail, at times very tiring, and two beautiful waterfalls: Webster's and Tews Falls. Webster's is a magnificent tiered waterfall and Tews, which towers at 41 metres, is only a few metres shorter than Niagara Falls. Both offer spectacular vistas of the gorge. A nature trail allows access to the Dundas Peak, which provides stunning views of Dundas and Hamilton. Other pathways passing through the park include the Bruce Trail, and a side-trail to historic Crook's Hollow Conservation Area.
