Hiking season is upon us, and Dundas Peak should be your first stop this spring.

Located just an hour from Toronto, the nature trail is filled with beautiful views of Dundas and Hamilton.

Part of the Spencer Gorge/Webster Falls Conservation Area, hikers can enjoy the Spencer Adventure Trail, which connects from Christie Lake all the way to the Dundas Peak.

To get to Dundas Peak from Tew Falls is approximately 1.5 km. There’s a park entrance fee of $5 and a parking lot ($10 per car).

From waterfalls and green views as far as the eyes can see, this is one of the most stunning nature areas in Ontario.

Of course, when visiting, respect the nature and stay on trails. Keep at safe distance on the Peak when taking those selfies.

And for those planning to visit soon, there is a shuttle service in place at Spencer Gorge/Webster Falls on weekends and Holiday Mondays, from May 12 (this weekend) to October 28, 2018 (weather permitting).

The first shuttle will leave Christie Lake at 9:30 am to travel to Spencer Gorge. Shuttle service returning to Christie Lake ends at 6:30 pm, (extended to 7:30 pm in June, July & August). There is no on-site parking available at Spencer Gorge during shuttle operations, with the exception of limited accessible parking at Webster Falls.

Note that this year, all parking lots at Spencer Gorge will be closed on weekends and holidays. Park at shuttle parking, located at 367 Highway 5 West.

And for those on the fence about checking this hike out, the pics should convince you…
