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

Really busy midday at the waterfall. Otherwise enjoyable hike.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Can't beat a trail where all you hear is nature and rushing water

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!

It’s a nice albeit cardio intensive trail. Lots of hills. Great leg workout!!

nothing out of the ordinary

Great for a winter hike!

Saw five deer and a spotted hawk today. Trail was busiest around the waterfalls. Nice short little hike.

Rocky trail path so excercise caution during winter and trecherous condition's, lots of variance in terrain, mature trees, interesting rock and steep cliff formations, breath taking Sherman Falls, spectacular late fall frozen icelcles, Tiffany Falls similar but more visable natural stone stair case as water flows. Definitely an intermediate hike worth visiting all year round.

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 along the river bank. Bruce Trail started off with a waterfall, then straight down hill. Lots of up and down hills and great views. Small parking lot at Mill Street South and Waterdown Rd. No fee.

Good size waterfall! Apparently spring is the prime time to go for water flow, however fall allowed us to walk through it as it was gentle enough. Decent access to the falls, still accessible to explore, not fenced off like some. Good set of trails attached to this waterfall. (Sometimes there’s not much to do other than be directly at the falls). Interesting section of the Bruce for a city stretch, nice that it has loop options.

Muddy terrain with lots of hills. Amazing views of the waterfall and the trail follows the river for a little while! I really liked the challenge and the calming feeling of the area.
