Websters Falls (or Webster�s Falls) could very well be the city of Hamilton�s most famous and most visited waterfall. And as you can see from the photo at the top of this page, it was totally understandable why that would be the case. Given its block-type shape, it reminded Julie and I of a smaller version of the Huangguoshu Waterfall in China except we couldn�t go behind it in this case. Webster�s Falls was said to be 22m high and about 24m wide at its crest.

Our experience with this waterfall was a mixed bag. On the one hand, we got to see most of the falls from what was left of the official lookouts that remained accessible to the public (especially the Dobson-McKee Lookout yielding the view at the top of this page). However, given all the literature and photos circulating about on the Hamilton Conservation Authority�s own publishings as well as on the web, we were misled into thinking that we could�ve experienced much more about the falls than what the reality ended up being. The culprit was the the numerous closures and infrastructure put in place to ensure that the best ways to experience the falls would not be possible (barring further risk to life and limb).

Among the waterfalling experiences that this waterfall no longer offered during our October 2013 visit were:

It was for that reason that what should have been a waterfall that would easily rate as high as Albion Falls didn�t. That said, there was a bit of rebelliousness at that other waterfall as many people ignored the closure of the trail to its base. However, in the case of Websters Falls, there was a Hamilton cop who was patrolling the area to make sure no one hopped the barricades and went to the now-forbidden areas of the falls.

While I can appreciate the conservation efforts pertaining to the waterfalls in and around Hamilton, we�ve learned from our experiences at other waterfalls around the world that authorities need to balance a satisfactory experience with conservation. It felt to us like with this waterfall (as well as most of Hamilton�s other waterfalls) the authorities took the more conservative approach by making just about all the best viewing spots off limits with the alternatives being far less than what drew us here in the first place. If more money would need to be collected to ensure that this balance would be struck, then so be it. But paying $10 for a very limited and subpar viewing experience left a little bit of a sour taste.

So what we were able to experience were basically from the aforementioned Dobson-McKee Lookout as well as the brink of the falls at the entrance to the now-closed stairway trail. From the car park, we basically followed a well-established paved path flanking a large lawn area to the left of the bridge over Spencer Creek above the falls. This lawn area seemed to be an ideal place for a picnic or family outing under warmer and sunnier weather than what we experienced. Beyond the end of the pavement, it looked like the trail kept going further down the rim of the gorge, and this was where we saw where the best cross-gorge view of the falls would have been except there was a tall metal fence erected to ensure access to that outcrop would not be possible.

Going towards the bridge over Spencer Creek, we then crossed over it into the Websters Falls Park where further upstream were more bridges and trails as well as remnants of the industrial past of this area throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. The Spencer Creek Bridge held some historical significance in that it was built back in the 1930s, then it became unusable and had to be closed to the public until a local community group (the Optimist Club of Greenville) undertook the restoration efforts of the bridge eventually re-opening it to the public on Canada Day in 2000.

We were able to experience the falls up close from its brink on the lookout on the other side of the bridge, where we could also look downstream across the gorge towards the people checking out the falls from the Dobson-McKee Lookout. This general viewing area was also where the access to the closed-off Stairway Trail started. So with this option denied to us, that was pretty much it for our visit to the falls.


Finally, there was one bit of good news where we were able to save a little on the $10 parking fee because we had visited Tews Falls earlier in the day. Thus, we didn�t have to pay another $10 to park by Webster�s Falls since they were all part of the Spencer Gorge Conservation Area.

Very beautiful place Webster Falls Hamilton Canada. A lots of walk in pure nature. I�ve been here with my kids in Canada�s day. There was an entrance fee for adults and kids over 6 years old. The fees were to support the natural place. I enjoyed the view of the falls.

A very beautiful park filled with hiking trails, natural rocks and breathtaking waterfalls. This is a great place for family and friends to come out if they want to relax and through a picnic. There is a bus that rotates every half hour and takes you to different parts of the park and every stop has its own hiking trail.

Used to be able to walk down the cliff and arrive the bottom of the falls. Now it is all fenced up because of liability reasons. It is however still beautiful on the top of the cliff however the closing of the walk way took the majority of the fun out of it.

Absolutely amazing spot, and MUCH bigger than I initially thought it being. Being a professional photographer I was able to get some amazing photo’s of this iconic spot. Would highly recommend visiting if you’re in the area.

Stairs removed at the base of Hamilton’s Webster Falls

Social Sharing

The 60-year-old stairs will eventually be replaced

A set of narrow, 60-year-old stairs at the base of Webster Falls have been removed due to safety reasons.

The Hamilton Conservation Authority announced the removal of the stairs Friday via its website.

While the stairs � made of steel, stone and wood � were closed and fenced off in 2012, visitors to the area were still able to access them by climbing over the fence or walking through the water.


«By removing the stairs entirely, access will no longer be possible to the bottom of the gorge by this method,» an online statement reads.

The conservation authority said it intends to replace the stairs and is currently working on designs which feature viewing platforms and photography areas. While a timeline has not been given, the replacement was identified as «a high priority» for conservation authority staff and the community.

Victim of its own popularity

Earlier this month, officials from the Hamilton Conservation Authority announced an increase in admission fees to popular waterfall sites across the city.

Just in time for the May long weekend, visitors to Webster Falls and Tews Falls were asked to pay $10 to park and $5 per person to visit. The increase is an attempt to control the amount of traffic these popular attractions receive.

Due to the large number of visitors to the gorge, the natural area was being damaged by people climbing up the embankments and walking under the falls, the authority said. People were also putting themselves at risk in the process, the authority added.
