This beautiful waterfall is just an hour from Toronto and it’s absolutely stunning

September is the perfect month to explore waterfalls as water is at its warmest and attractions are less busy due to many people being back to school.
Websters Falls is not far from Toronto Ontario. Just minutes outside Hamilton Ontario Canada the falls has bridges, nature trails, rustic rock stairs in ruin and a waterfall to explore.

When looking at the grounds from the path to the right of the driveway take the first path on the right and go up and around the trail to the set of stone bridges.
Two stone bridges cross over a little flowing brook, everything looks like a fairy tale story book scene, this magical setting seems like a great place to propose or take engagement photos. ( fellas you can thank me later) .

Cross the bridge and look to the left, you will see a fence with gaps to go in and the remains of an old retired trail that once took visitors on guided tours. A decently challenging decent to the bottom awaits you down a rock face, but you will be pleasantly surprised at the trees, rocks and holes to grab on to from the old retired trail. once you make it to the mid point of the hike down follow the clear dirt path and rock stairs remaining from earlier times when the place was more thriving with outdoors enthusiasts with less technology having been available to occupy time. The mid point setting is picturesque and perfect for photo opportunities so make sure your devices are charged. A staircase going to nowhere that looks like it is out of lord of the rings, makes for many possible creative ideas for photoshoots.

Continue past the stairs and continue the path to the river that flows from the waterfall. The waterfall has several rocks covered in grass you can use to grip with your feet and hop on to. You can go right into the waterfall if you are cautious and balance properly.

Websters falls is a great place for a family reunion or BBQ celebration with friends as there are several open lands and covered eating areas to cook and eat at and grass to play on or set up games on although I would not recommend the hike down to the waterfall for small children or children who are not used to outdoors climbing.
