This is a beautiful scenic trail! The view from the Peak is definitely worth seeing and a great place to stop and rest before turning back towards Tew’s Falls. The trail is not too challenging and offers some amazing scenery and views! Best to go mid week as it can get busy on the weekends!

awesome

Nice trail with many easy access points. I have gone about a dozen times and still continue to find news paths and views.

An absolutely beautiful trail that starts at the waterfall. Easy to maneuver around the rocks, fallen trees and Staggered terrain. Perfect for the nature enthusiast like myself.

No access to the falls as now the City of Hamilton fenced off all trails down. Some nice view spots but too far to enjoy the falls. Law officers are on the trails and giving fines up to 105CAD. Definitely looks like a permanent solution from the city. Too bad.

Nice Walk in the forest and some good views, but very busy and next to civilization

I would rate this as an easy trail not a moderate, but plenty of good views! A nice stroll

Nice easy walk. Pretty falls to see.

Just loved it... best place to hike... felt amazing seeing green everywhere... will definitely go again

This hike is amazing. Elevation change, waterfalls, incredible biodiversity, and not heavily used. I recommend adding to the trail either by Sherman Falls, or the McCormack Trail, to make it easier to park and have some more beautiful additions.

Trail doesn’t exist at the end of the loop. Tried to follow it on the map which said we were on the trail but it wasn’t there. Wouldn’t recommend the loop to anyone! But going one way to the stairs down the cliff then turning back would be a nice hike

Great in the fall!

Parked at tews falls, has the biggest parking lot. Great hike with mild elevation. Can be very busy so avoid weekend afternoons.

Walking along with the creek. Wanderful waterfall! Very nice place for Hiking.

Great trail for getting little ones interested in hiking. Lots of roots and rocks to negotiate around. Waterfall views and river sound is awesome. Trees have fallen and block the path in a few spots. Girls had a blast and both fell asleep in the truck on the way home. Truly impressed to all those who put the time in to make the trail what is. Thank you.

It was a good hike! Lots of variation in the elevation and beautiful scenery. The only thing I would suggest is putting a parking lot closer to the beginning of the trail.

Lots of fun with great variety of hills. Keeps it interesting with beautiful scenery to go along with it

Beautiful trail, lots of ups and down. I went during the week therefore it was very quiet... saw a few runners and cyclist. Very good indication of the main trail. The only downfall is the giant hill my dog and I had to walk back up when going back to the car.

An old cart path that cuts through copses between farm fields and rural roads on top of the escarpment. Very flat and straight topography throughout. Large section of well maintained boardwalks that meander through swampy woodland where you'll hear frogs croaking as you pass. All around pleasant, but easy route for walking or cycling. Prepare accordingly for ticks, by wearing long pants and checking your clothes after. I failed to heed my own advice and found 5 on me throughout the trip.

Saw 7 deer, 2 racoons and 1 owl. If you want to get closer to the trail drive down the dirt road.

Great park with great trails. However, if you are off main trails, there are almost no trail signs and markers.

Nice trail, not overcrowded like other similar ones nearby, rewarding views over Hamilton & Dundas, culminating in lovely waterfalls.

This trail runs from Christie Conservation in the south through Beverly Swamp up to the Fletcher Creek Ecological Preserve in the north . Some sections are on road , some of which can be busy . One section is quite steep and could be difficult to casual hikers . Christie park is very regulated with pay parking etc . The Fletcher Creek Ecological Preserve is unregulated and has been know for large bush parties in the past . Beverly Swamp in the middle is a bug's paradise . You will need sturdy boots for the off road sections and log pants for tick protection permethrin treated preferably . Definitely need mosquito repellent and deer fly patches . Fairly long days outing bring lots of water and as all water along the trail is considered contaminated . The adjoining land owners are not friendly so best to ignore them . Enjoy !

Just a reminder that they fine you $10,000 if you walk on the closed trails near Albion Falls. I went today and there was bi-law officers walking around keeping an eye out. Might as well just stay safe and not go on closed trails.

April the leaves arnt back yet and some trails are really muddy, so kind of dangerous for some. However, it does get very nice in the summer.

Entrance from mill st is very steep, many stairs. After you get past the descend it's great! Try it out.

love the app.no more guessing where i am

Well kept trail with nice views. The waterfall is nice as well.

Enjoyed this trail by hiking lower devil's punch bowl to Felkers falls. Muddy and bare foliage, which I'd expect for this time of year.
