"Photos of Webster's Falls" Dundas Travelogue by helloloolie
Dundas Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 24 photos
This photo of Webster's Falls was taken during the summertime from below the waterfall. It was a beautiful sunny day and the cascading water was glistening and sparkling.
I was sitting with some friends from up above the waterfall - there is just enough room to sit right beside the crashing water as it plunges over the edge. You can also enjoy the view of the nearby forest and creek.
There is a neighbouring park called Webster's Falls Conservation Area. Recently, a cobblestone bridge was built over the creek that flows down into the waterfall. There are lots of places to sit by the river and grassy areas to have a picnic/read a book/play sports.
The water flows down from Webster's Falls into Spencer Creek. You are able to take a path along the creek and walk through the forest near the rushing water.
Tews Falls is another waterfall located near Webster's Falls. In the picture here, there wasn't much water flowing over as the water levels were lower this time of year; however, the water really rushes over the edge when water levels are higher. Tews Falls drops over the edge at a comparable height to Niagara Falls! You can also take in the beautiful views of Spencer Gorge where the waterfall plunges down below.
Once you hike past Tews Falls along the ascending trail, you will reach what we call "The Peak". It is a clearing at the top of the escarpment overlooking the entire town. This photo was taken in the Fall and looks back on the forest and conservation area.
Also taken from the peak, this photo shows the town of Dundas below the escarpment.
You can also visit Webster's Falls in the winter to see a beautiful frozen waterfall. I don't think the trails are fully maintained during the winter, but you can definitely check out the waterfall if you're willing to walk through the snow. Be careful if the steps down below are slippery, although they might be maintained. Not many people visit here in the winter as in the summer, but it is equally as beautiful in my opinion.
