Well maintained and scenic trail.
Left Hamilton at 6am and arrived near end in Brantford around 9am. Bring water and munchies as no facilities on route.

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

Good trail. Heavily populated. Other then that, a great ride. Well maintained and a beautiful landscape.

Great bike from Brantford to Hamilton, really well maintained and enjoyable views of wooded areas and farm land.

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.

Very enjoyable to cycle, especially on a hot sunny day!

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

love the app.no more guessing where i am

I did this trail February 2018. I loved it! It's probably more beautiful in the summer. Cambridge waterfall was in the vicinity. It had a few muddy spots. It's also part of the Bruce trail and crossed paths with other trails.

Trail started out nice on top of the escarpment , some nice views . As it got into the city the local riffraff was out in force damaging the trail and spray painting everything . A couple punks wanted to get into it with us , they ran off . The million dollar bridge over the QEW highway is interesting . This trail fell short of expectations . Be prepared on this one !!

This is my staple trail. I do the main loop about 60x a year!

We have leapfroged this trail many times . It has sufficient length for good backpacking . Very busy at the populated ends with people gaulking at us . I guess they have never seen backpackers before , we just smile and wave . The center sections are much less traveled and good distance can be made . I recommend keeping your head up for the fast and heavy bike traffic . Nicest section goes under the 403 along the creek . It used to be the T H & B railway till the river bank caved in at Cainsville , lots of history on this trip . K !!

nothing out of the ordinary

Nice trail - TONS of side trails so this could be made much much longer. The trail was moderately busy (we saw a few cyclists, other hikers and 3 groups of horseback riders), mind you we started our hike at 10am on a mild Saturday. Trail is well maintained and easy to navigate, would rate this trail easy, for any normal hiker.

Very hilly, but note, a good portion 2+ km of this trail is ROAD, the middle section of the trail is broken up - the trail stop at Safari Road and then restarts at 8th Concession. We turned back as we had dogs and didn’t want to walk on the road with them, but may be nice if you start at the north end and walk south (towards 8th Concession). Don’t think we would do this again, between 6th Concession and Safari Road it is very hilly.

great trail, super wide and well maintained. I love going for runs along here and every km is marked. I often see deer and it connects to the Dundas Valley Conservation area at about km 5 and theres a whole other network of trails.
