Part of the Spencer Gorge Conservation Area and maintained by the Hamilton Conservation Authority, Dundas Peak Trail is a popular trail through a forested area with waterfalls and beautiful views. The trailhead is at the end of Falls View Road off of Harvest Road. This trail offers two waterfalls, Tews Falls, and Webster's Falls, and a beautiful peak that looks out to Hamilton. The walk to Dundas peak is really beautiful through the forest. This is a busy hiking trail and the parking area is small. There is a $10 parking fee per vehicle and $5 entrance fee per person. On the weekends you may need to use the shuttle service.

Love this trail. Great for all ages, just be careful with young children since it's on the edge of the escarpment. Beautiful views all the way through, starts with a loud waterfall and ends with a birds eye view of Dundas Valley. There are a couple side trails and are definitely worth taking if you have the time. Take caution during winter and after rainfalls as it can get muddy and slippery! As long as you're aware of your surroundings and being safe you will make it home happy and smiling.

This is a nice trail, very scenic with views of Tews falls, unfortunately the trail to Webster's falls has been cut off.

Have to start at Tews Falls parking lot and not Webster’s Falls. The trail between Webster’s Falls and Tews Falls is closed. Otherwise great hike.

This is a beautiful scenic trail! The view from the Peak is definitely worth seeing and a great place to stop and rest before turning back towards Tew’s Falls. The trail is not too challenging and offers some amazing scenery and views! Best to go mid week as it can get busy on the weekends!

Great walk for everyone, make sure to go when it’s not too hot out otherwise the falls will be dried

It is rated moderate but it is as easy as it gets.

There is very little hiking on this trail. You have to pay for parking and a shuttle to get to the falls.

Beautiful views however very busy! There’s a lot of secondary trails that are a bit quieter. Definitely suggest going on a week day if possible

A nice trail with views of Dundas valley. Quite attractive in the fall, but be aware that the trail can be quite muddy if it has rained. Please return to your vehicle with the garbage you bring!

Great hike to bring your dog on. Challenging enough to work up a sweat. The Tews falls are beautiful, and we are looking forward to seeing them again in the Fall. Walk to Dundas peak is really beautiful through the forest. Only downside is it's quite busy on weekends and you have to either park and shuttle in, or pay a local to park in their driveway.

Busy busy busy. The whole school bus experience takes a bit out of the experience. Otherwise the falls are nice. Could do with trimming back to allow better views. There is no longer a trail between the the two falls cause the locals raised a stink. Too bad for us nature lovers...

Pretty busy usually, otherwise nice trail and views.

this one is only fun if you hop the fence and do some scrambling. Also important to note that it's a 5$ entry fee per person

Trail was beautiful, once we got on it had no complaints. part of it was blocked off because of a fence as it was someone's back yard. Also no place to park, so be prepared to shuttle to trail beginning as walking on road is a bit sketch.

Great short hike with a few steep inclines and declines. The views from Dundas Peak are stunning. Tews Falls is breathtaking. Tip: For those who want a shorter version of the hike start from Tews Falls and hike to Dundas Peak look out and back.

Went in late October. The fall colours were beautiful but the trail was VERY crowded. Also, a section of the loop was closed because it's on private land.

Great trail and views. Don't go on a Sunday. Hoards of people don't allow for much enjoyment.

Great hiking trail along Webster's falls, Tews falls, and dundas peak. There were plenty lookout points hiking up dundas peak.

Good experience hiking around the Tews Falls, Webster Falls and Dundas Peak. The route however from Webster Falls to Tew Falls has been closed permanently, because a portion of the trail is on private land, and the owner has revoked access to the public - so we had to drive to the other trail. It cost $10 for parking, and $5 per person ($20 in total for me) but this did include admission to Tews Falls, Webster Falls and Christie Lake. The trails are not well tagged, and we did end up going too far off the course - thank goodness for google maps.
