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.

Yeah well...this used to be an amazing place. Used to start at the school in Dundas and finish at the peak.

20 yrs later, no more stairs at Webster’s. They charge a lot of money to use the facility but minimal progress on any attempt to repair the stairs down to a great waterfall you can walk behind. Parts of the trail have completely washed away due to erosion and lack of maintenance.

Sad, it’s so sad what it has become. Our wedding pictures were taken here. I realize I am blending Webster’s and Tews but that was the hike I always did. I miss it, hard one to come close to.

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.

Great afternoon walk

Ran the trail for the first time on Mother's day. I started at the Chedoke stairs and walked down to the trail. Ran 4 k up to the foot path over the highway and back. Trail is mostly a wide trail mix of paved and hard pack. There are some sections with bike tire ruts. You can get a complete workout if you through in the Chedoke stairs.

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

Really busy midday at the waterfall. Otherwise enjoyable hike.

Unfortunately I lost my Fitbit on the trail this morning. I’m hoping whoever finds it might see this

RBG has begun charging full park entrance fees to use this trail so unless you want to pay $18/adult for a hike? I’d go elsewhere.

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.

great hike very peaceful

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.

Clean, paved, easy walk by the lake.

Nice walk. Lots of tail signs. Look out was a bit lacklustre.

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

Nice little walk. I parked at Tiffany falls and walked this route in reverse (there is a small parking lot there but there wasn’t a clearly designated parking area at the beginning of this map).

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.

I would classify this as an easy trail. The parking is expensive ($3/hour) and they do ticket so beware. Beautiful trail by the water, pretty quiet on Easter Sunday. Lots of animals including deer and birds.

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.
