Webster’s Falls in the Winter


Hamilton, Ontario, Canada is the Waterfall Capital of the World with more than 100 waterfalls.

Today we decided to hike to the beautiful Webster’s Falls located near Spencer Creek in Dundas, Ontario.  Webster’s Falls is is about 70 feet high and is a crazy 98 feet wide.

The trail we started was from King Street (we parked in a residential side street) trekked up King Street to a marked path along the creek to the waterfall.  There was a packed trail from others that led us there, but it is marked if this is your first time adventuring out.

This photo below was taken from my Strava activity.  It took us 1 1/2 hours round trip, 127m elevation gain, 5.1km hike round trip in and burned 309 calories.  I highly recommend hiking poles as they not only help your stability but is good to keep your arms elevated while on hikes so your hands don’t swell.

We will definitely be going back in the summer, pack a lunch and hike behind the falls.
