Weekend trip to Webster’s falls and Tews Falls

For Good Friday, we went with my friend Kanch and her family to Webster’d Falls at a park in Hamilton. They said it was great, so we tagged along this time.

About an hour drive from Scarborough, we reached the park. The main parking was full already (being small) but we found a good place halfway between the two waterfalls we wanted to see – Webster’s and Tew’s.

Webster’s fall was the first exploration. To reach near the falls, we went down through 150 steep iron stairs.

The steps were uneven.

But it was worth going down. On the higher ground above just before the curtain waterfall, is a stone bridge built over the creek. Standing there, it felt like we were transported to the medieval times … or was that just me?

When we went down the creek just invited us to explore more. The water danced over the rocks with  its own music. The fallen trees inspired the others to walk over the water…  Kanch and I stood over a steady rock while our husbands and kids found ways to walk on the rocks and logs in the creek.

When we climbed back up we were really tired. After a bit of rest, we went to explore the trail to the Tews falls.

The trees weren’t yet out of their winter sleepiness but a few were early risers, including the lonely flower.

 

The Tews falls is the second tallest fall in Ontario, next to Niagara. The water flows from the top into what looks like a bowl. In person, it’s amazing! The gorge is very deep. I didn’t felt it is a lot of water.

Our legs were complaining, but we kept to the trail. When we finally made it to the end, we came to a great view of Dundas from up high. There was  train track tat oddly looked like it was climbing to the sky from where we were.

But the chill of April was coming – it was time to go back.

Here are some last pictures

    The trip looked like it was both relaxing and rewarding. My favorite pictures are the first two, but I would have thoroughly enjoyed the entire park.

  4. I loved your adventure to the two falls. It makes me want to go the that park when I am next in that area.

    Being that I live in NorCal, your post has inspired me to go the some of my own local parks to explore and use my camera.

  5. I admit to never having heard of this park but now that I have, I want to go there! The photos are terrific and add so much to my experience of seeing what is available. Ontario looks beautiful. If I ever get there, I definitely would make time for this.

    It’s also great that you are exposing your kids to the wonders of nature and the outdoors. It beats video games and Guitar Hero any day. I remember having adventures like this when I was a kid and I regret not having done it more with my own children.

    Lovely weekend outing! Thanks for sharing it!!

    • Thanks for visiting Kay. Usually, when the days get longer and warmer, we like to go and explore. Day trips are less expensive and great fun. There is much to see in Ontario. Hamilton is also called as the “city of waterfalls”.
