Take a dive over Webster's Falls
Hamilton has no shortage of majestic waterfalls — but Webster's Falls is unmatched as one of the most spectacular in the region.
It's one of two falls within the Spencer Gorge, and with a crest of 24 metres, it's the largest in the area.
Now that spring has sprung and Spencer Creek's water flow is bursting through the mass of ice once again, we here at CBC Hamilton did what anyone in our position would do — send a drone over the sheer 22-metre drop of the curtain waterfall to capture it in all its glory.
Watch the video in the player above to see the sheer scope of the falls. If you can make it to the Spencer Gorge Conservation Area and see it for yourself, you absolutely should.
This waterfall was actually originally known as Dr. Hamilton's Falls, after Dr. James Hamilton purchased the land in 1818. The waterfalls and 78 acres of the surrounding land were then purchased by Joseph Webster after his family arrived from England in 1820. The falls and surrounding land are now part of the Hamilton Conservation Authority holdings.
Now, it's one of the most popular destinations in Hamilton.
