We were driving by and stopped here for a quick view of the falls. Didn't appreciate the $10 fee for parking considering we were there for only 10 minutes. Didn't realize that people were parking across the street for free on the road. Would recommend...More

Beautiful... But not allowed to cross over the fence and go to the bottom of the falls, I mean, maybe you could but you shouldn't as some of the terrain is steep and unsafe

The Tews and Webster falls are very close to each other and parking is horrendous. The rich residents in the area managed to make all roads in the area private parking. What? These people only bought the mansions, not the roads and the waterfalls. When...More

I spent my youth visiting and climbing at Tews Falls, and spent time with the Tews family, that’s who the Falls is named after. It was always a place to just sit and listen to the trickle of water, and nature. Thank goodness it’s not...More

I'm tempted to say I prefer this waterfall to Niagara Falls simply because there's no crowds, just beautiful surroundings. The falls is mighty tall and the escarpment mighty steep so watch out. The lookout point is fenced off but the trail is not. We followed...More

No entrance fee. There is a small parking lot just down the road and it is a pay per use lot. This is not a site for mobility challenged as the trail from the parking lot to the viewing area is not paved or even, just a dirt... More
