Adventure Stamp: Hike to the Dundas Peak – Websters & Tews Falls

Hiking to the Dundas Peak is definitely one of the most rewarding hikes in Southern Ontario! There are two gorgeous waterfalls along the way, Websters & Tews Falls, and the hike ends with panoramic views of picturesque Dundas and the surrounding escarpment.

I grew up exploring these trails and I still can’t get enough and hike them as often as I can!

The first waterfall you encounter along the trail is Websters Falls. Good old Webster is a 22 meter high curtain waterfall that has water levels that fluctuate year round. You can walk in and behind the waterfall and swim in the pool during the early summer months but later in the summer it tends to dry up too much and there’s hardly more than a trickle left.

Tews Falls towers at 41-meters and is only slightly shorter than Niagara Falls, in other words…it’s huge! I think I actually prefer Tews Falls to Websters Falls but everyone gives Websters all the recognition! There are a couple of viewing platforms along the trail allowing for different vantage points of Tews Falls.
