Explore the most popular Hiking trails near Hamilton with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

FYI, you have to pay to enter the park. Cost is $15. Large property with many onsite campers and trailers. It was a pleasant although a bit dull on the flat, straight and large pathways. I prefer a bit more winding and natural trails. A chilly time of year to circle a lake but I can imagine it's quite beautiful in the summer. Interesting transitions to marsh lands with long and winding boardwalks.

Beautiful! Fall foliage is fantastic. Look out isn’t much though

Fantastic trail ! Wish there were more garbage cans around

My boyfriend and I went a little off trail and did some exploring, but mostly stuck to the trail until it got dark (about halfway through the whole trail). very beautiful with incredible views!! Definitely recommend this for seeing the beautiful autumn colours! :) PS; at one point when we were a little off the main path, the map shot us out across the highway... not sure what happened there lmao

I agree with lots of other reviewers. An amazing spot and trail. To get there is a disaster in terms of having to wait for a shuttle (we waited 1 hour), the cost $15 for driver and $5 per person. Line was disorganized and they should split cash and debit lines. The portapotties were unbearable. Pee in the bush, it will save you from contacting something. Otherwise spectacular views.

The trail itself is 5*. However the ridiculous crowds and 30+ min wait to get a shuttle there at 11:30 on a Sunday morning was less than ideal. For the amount of money they're raking in, they should be able assess that good weather and full fall colours means crowds! And get more busses. Also the porta potties at the drop off point were DISGUSTING. Full to the brim and no toilet paper by noon. The views at the peak were spectacular and of you can at all avoid a weekend, I'd highly recommend!

Pretty cool trail! No longer allowed to descend down the stairs at Albion Falls so you just get a nice view from the lookout points. Nice trail meshed in with the surrounding neighbourhoods so it’s not too out in the wild, easy to follow.

Very easy but very busy. You have to park at Crystal lake conservation area and get a shuttle back.

Nice easy trail. At the same time, has an awesome view at the lookout. Especially with all the fall colors! I went there twice this year, once in the spring, which is when I realized that it would look beautiful in autumn... and... I was NOT disappointed. We got there close to sunset, which made the colors even more vibrant. Uploaded a few photos. A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Although it’s not comparable to the famous Rocky Mountains trails and such, but considering the effort needed vs the view you get, I would give it a 5-star!

Really nice sprawling trail system. Just wander and enjoy.

Great for a few hours out with the family and dog. Quite a lot of traffic on the trail so must be quite popular

I went there with my kids and my husband with our dog. traveling around the the waterfall to the left of the parking lot is okay. You end up at the top of the waterfull and you have to walk arou d on the road and then in a open field along the steep edge ( with no barriers). You definitely want your dog on a leash and kids close. Its also not very scenic other than the view of Hamilton and factories. we ended up walking to the waterfall turning around and taking the rock chapel trail to the right for a bit. wide trail versus the very narrow waterfall trail nice but nothing special. we wont be back.

Very easy trail when dry... Wide and generally smooth walking surfaces. There is a bench at the scenic lookout (marked "View of Lake Ontario") which would be a nice place for a lunch break.

Parking lots were closed and on holiday schedule so we had to go park at the main conservation area for a fee and take the shuttle to the falls. Nice easy flat gravel trail but very busy on Thanksgiving, even starting from 9am. Fall colours are at about 80% and very pretty. Part of the trail between Tew’s Fall to Webster Falls is closed off and designated private property. Therefore we had to take the shuttle bus in between them, which added extra time otherwise we could have ended 30-45min earlier.

This trail is closed in several places. It is very dangerous if you try to follow the path anyway. Also the parking is remote and you have to take a shuttle. Other parts of the trail are unbelievably crowded.

Great trail and well marked. We also did the Canterbury Falls side loop, which is an extra 2.4 kms, this loop had some amazing views!

The trail is long but not difficult at all. Lots of dogs and we even saw a horse. It took us three hours to complete the entire trail but could be done in shorter amount of time if you dont have a dog who likes to sniff around.

Easy hike. Although should have waited few days more to see full colors.

Nicely shaded trail. Everyone using the trail were courteous and friendly. Pretty clean except for the horse droppings. Portable toilet were clean, garbage cans were not overflowing. I will be back very soon..... I need to take this experience in again!

To get to the trail head you have to pay $10 to park, but they have a card reader if you don't have cash. The trail we took was a nice small foot path. It was muddy but was not as slippery as you would expect.

Easy trail, well maintained. Scenic lake views.

Beautiful trail along the creek

Easy trail nice for a short walk and nice view and pics

beautiful fall, but the hike is very easy and accessible unlike the rating of moderate

Just a short walk around the Christ the King property. What a peaceful place. Serenity now!

If you don’t have time for a long hike, this one is perfect!
