Loved the trail, well marked, also had plenty of side trails that all led back to the main trail.

Great hike, need to take shuttle. Multiple sketchy ways to get to webster falls, but it was worth it. Make sure you pack snacks and ample water. Women should refrain from excessive make up as it may melt off from the heat. Have fun!

Great trail for a good hike

A nice easy partially paved trail. Pretty waterfall at the end.

Started at the access trail today by the market. Beautiful walk down but steep. The water was all dried up and too many trees to see much but still great. Unfortunately the trail back up on the other side is closed so I got a bit lost and had to walk back on the road. The view from Ridge road is amazing. Met some great people who were lost too so it was a great time!

Good for hiking with your dog!

Overall had a good experience. Patches of the trails are less maintained then others though. Price is 15 per car +5$ per person. Pros: -not a huge amount of bugs -sandy beach -dog friendly -casual trail -washrooms -lots of open areas to enjoy with large families Cons: -We had trouble finding the opening of the trail -trail was as bit short so you may want to do a few laps -there is a lot of goose/seagull poop on the grass/shoreline so be careful when you’re on the grass

The first portion of the trail is poorly maintained, and the Lake portion of the trail walks through people's picnic sites.

Make sure you walk down to the bottom of the cascade. It’s the best view of the hike.

Great hike. Highly recommend

limited shade and there is a tick warning. some of the trail is grassy making you more vulnerable to ticks.

There was horse manure all over the beginning of the path!! Took away from the entire experience! Very disappointing

This is a fast and easy hike and the trails are well groomed. Since both of the waterfalls are also accessible via two parking lots they tend to be busy with lots of families. You do need to cross a main road at two points during the short hike. It can be quite busy on the roads as well All in all we enjoyed this little hike.

Our fav new trail system. Take the marshwalk side trail to get a gorgeous view along a boardwalk. Lots of deer, foxes, birds and other critters. Perfect dog walk.

Great trail system. Lots of water sources. Lots of side trails. Meeting spots. Perfect for dogs. Well maintained.

The trail is around the top of the punchbowl. The layers in the escarpment are cool and the viewing platform gives a spectacular view of lower Stoneycreek and Lake Ontario. Couldn't find a trail to go down to the bottom that seemed safe. parking is $5

I wouldn’t recommend this for road biking, the trail is far too loose and hilly for road bikes. My partner had a close call coming down a steep hill with loose gravel. Some parts of the trail are also challenging with rocks and roots for a road bike. We got a bit lost but did end up making some type of loop! Beautiful spot but use a mountain bike if you’re planning to cycle. Great workout! Nice and shady! Not too busy!

This is a great loop trail with plenty of trees, views of the lake, benches, a place to play beach volley ball, parking and food at Hutches. There aren’t many spots to get too close to the water though. The trees provide shade on some parts of the trail.

This trail had some great views and awesome opportunities for pictures. The trails are pretty poorly marked so if you plan on taking it on make sure you take a look at the maps first.

Beautiful flower gardens with views of downtown Hamilton. Lovely trail that's easy for anyone to use. Paved and accessible.

Beautiful views and a lookout platform. Only thing missing is the river that used to pour over its cliffs!

Busy Trail on the stairs and the slope. Trail then returns via roadway. Small waterfall at the top of the slope. Views are ok.

Save your money and park at the other end of the trail on Livingstone Drive at the playground. There is a spur trail the connects close to the trailhead of the main trail. Nice hike with slow incline and long straightaways along old rail lines. Views at Dundas Peak and the Falls are amazing and worth the hike up from the bottom of the trail. One of the best hikes and falls in the Hamilton area!

Definitely start at the Hamilton end! Great trail for cycling. Very well-maintained.

Land owned by Royal Bottanical Gardens. Parking is $1 per hour. Difficult to find good views as there is a lot of tree growth. Half of the Rock Chapel Loop is grassy meadow that runs along a farm field and is heavily overgrown.
