Nice trail to do at the Spencer Gorge Conservation Area.

You can see the Tew and Webster Falls, also be on the Dunda's Peak and have a nice view from there.

I was snowy so the view was really nice, all white.

Pretty easy trails, go for it and enjoy !

Short walk to the Webster’s falls from parking and lovely hiking area. You can get around Webster’s Falls from a couple different directions. Spencer’s trail is cut in a few areas because of housing. Good way to spend your afternoon.

Disclaimer is that if you simply go to the places that the crowd/tour goes you will really not experience any of the beauty of this location. If you are willing to venture off on your own then this trail (which used to be fully accessible) is remarkable. A gorgeous flowing stream, 2 waterfalls and a peak that's awestruck. Climbing to the peak can pose challenging, do bring good shoes and water as it is quite a steep climb. Avoid any rock-climbing as it seems achievable but really isn't even for the avid climbers.

The conservation area is good for trails and doing a picnic at the Webster Falls area. It is a bit expensive to spend $10 for parking and $5/person for access to the conservation area and the Tew and Webster Falls.

My daughter and I drove an hour to find that the parking lots have been closed. You follow these Fallsview Parking signs which you assume would be just around the corner; 10 minutes later you arrive at this farm that's been converted to a parking lot and pay booth for the Falls–a shuttle bus drives you back to a drop off site near the falls. You pay $10 for parking an another $5 per person for admission; I didn't think the money was that much of an issue until I arrived at the falls. The falls are surrounded by a 4 foot high metal fence that also cuts off most of the forest paths. 10 minutes of walking around in a circle and you've basically seen everything, including the obstructed view of the falls. Last time I visited Webster's Falls I was able to walk down to the bottom to an incredible view - that is no more. The entire trip was a swarm of annoyed and frustrated visitors who were trying to figure out how to get to the bottom.

We then decided to walk to the nearby Tews Falls Nope, no longer accessible by foot; have to make your way back and wait for another shuttle (school bus) to take you there. I asked the park attendant if Tews Falls was also behind a fence and he confirmed the falls were no longer accessible. At that point we decided to cut our losses and left–it was obvious we weren't the only ones who felt ripped off.

An hour drive and $20 admission just to admire steel fencing. Shameful at what they did to this place.
