These falls are located close to each other in a conservation area so you can easily visit both in one day. Tew's Falls (seen in the photos above) is the highest falls in the Hamilton area and is just a little bit shorter than Niagara Falls. Webster's Falls (seen in the photo below) is considered the most scenic waterfall in the area of the city of Hamilton.
Hamilton is built on the Niagara Escarpment - a ridge that runs from Tobermory up on Lake Huron to Niagara Falls in the south- and causes a dramatic elevation change. You can see the edge of the escarpment in the photos below. It is only makes sense that when an escarpment runs through a city it would allow for the formation of many waterfalls. Somehow I just never made that connection when it came to Hamilton even though I've lived nearby for years.
I love finding little treasures like this and you can bet I won't forget about this one. I'll be back waterfalls! I hear you are beautiful in the winter too. Have you ever discovered a treasure near where you live that you had never visited before.
