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

Started at Tiffany falls and went backwards. Took my 12yr old daughter or her first hike and it was challenging but for for her. Well maintained and not a lot of traffic. Views were great.

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.

Beautiful trail and while I would definitely hike it again I would not recommend it for someone who isn’t used to hiking. My mom had a really hard time with how hilly and rocky the trail got in some places. Next time I would also agree with others who suggested parking at Tiffany Falls and taking the trail backwards. The parking near Sherman falls is pretty far from the trailhead and is uphill on the way back and after a hike on a humid day, that hill was not fun.

This place is so amazing. Peaceful, beautiful, full of wildlife and a great variety of elevation. There’s a stream too and lots of side trails so there’s lots of possible routes. I didn’t want to leave

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

Love the gentle terrain, nice rocky streams, tall trees and friendly horse riders. Can be a a bit busy with mountain bike riders on weekends. Nice highlight is the trail center, lots of interesting wild life facts, amazing old style steam train. Overall a nice trail.

Not what we expected at all , will never go back
