Spencer Gorge Conservation Area

Spencer Gorge Conservation Area

Perhaps the most scenic of Hamilton's natural areas, Spencer Gorge spans the escarpment and contains 2 of Hamilton's most well-known waterfalls, Webster's and Tews, as well as Dundas Peak. Tews Fall is the tallest waterfall in Hamilton and at 41 meters high is only a few meters shorter than Niagara Falls. Webster's fall is possibly one of Hamilton's most visited and most beautiful waterfalls and is contained in a gorgeous park area. Dundas Peak is another cliff side view point that highlights the expanse of the gorge. With views of Hamilton, Dundas, and Spencer gorge it is a sight everyone must see.
