Due to the area's popularity, visitors to Webster Falls require an online reservation if visiting during a long weekend between May and September and daily during the fall colour season.
Webster Falls is the largest waterfall in the region – and one of the most popular. Located in the historic village of Dundas, Webster Falls is close to hiking trails, beautiful green space and great amenities and restaurants in town.
- This 22-metre classical curtain waterfall is one of Hamilton’s most iconic waterfalls.
- Its wide expanse of waterfall spills over a tiered drop, not far from where the shuttle drops off visitors.
- It’s well worth a visit in the fall for prime leaf viewing of stunning Dundas Valley.
- It’s part of the Spencer Gorge/Webster Falls Conservation Area, one of Upper Canada’s earliest industrial communities.
- The open grounds around the falls are easy to navigate and pause for photos or to enjoy a snack.
- Don’t miss the beautifully restored cobblestone bridge that crosses Spencer Creek.
