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.

Beware of very limited parking on Sundays as they lock the gates at the front. There is a small lot and parking is not allowed on the road.
This seems to be a conservation area geared towards families picnicking, using the boat launch, etc. so not a good fit if you're looking for a more remote hiking experience. We walked on a lot of pavement.
To be fair we didn't end up really exploring the hiking trails, we started down one and it was muddy to the point of slipping and sliding. We were already turned off enough to just turn back and head home.

enjoyable walk

This trail is my favourite in Dundas. It is quick, and has some spectacular views of the surrounding area, flora, and fauna of Dundas Valley. I highly advise sunrise hikes here, since the sun rises with almost unobstructed views of the East. It is very magical, especially in summer when wildlife, and the morning humidity is abundant.

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.

Nice well kept trail. Except for the bikes speeding and not
signaling that they are approaching . Other wise quite enjoyable.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.
