Tews Falls is the tallest of the waterfalls in Hamilton. It is a 41 metre ribbon falls, which is only 10 metres shorter than Niagara Falls. Much of the gorge was carved out about ten thousand years ago. The rock layers are deposits of mud and other substances from the floors of the ancient seas that once covered this part of the continent. You can find this waterfall as part of the Bruce Trail in Dundas.
