Great for a few hours out with the family and dog. Quite a lot of traffic on the trail so must be quite popular

Very easy trail when dry... Wide and generally smooth walking surfaces. There is a bench at the scenic lookout (marked "View of Lake Ontario") which would be a nice place for a lunch break.

This trail is closed in several places. It is very dangerous if you try to follow the path anyway. Also the parking is remote and you have to take a shuttle. Other parts of the trail are unbelievably crowded.

Great trail and well marked. We also did the Canterbury Falls side loop, which is an extra 2.4 kms, this loop had some amazing views!

The trail is long but not difficult at all. Lots of dogs and we even saw a horse. It took us three hours to complete the entire trail but could be done in shorter amount of time if you dont have a dog who likes to sniff around.

Easy hike. Although should have waited few days more to see full colors.

Nicely shaded trail. Everyone using the trail were courteous and friendly. Pretty clean except for the horse droppings. Portable toilet were clean, garbage cans were not overflowing. I will be back very soon..... I need to take this experience in again!

To get to the trail head you have to pay $10 to park, but they have a card reader if you don't have cash. The trail we took was a nice small foot path. It was muddy but was not as slippery as you would expect.

Easy trail, well maintained. Scenic lake views.

Beautiful trail along the creek

Easy trail nice for a short walk and nice view and pics

beautiful fall, but the hike is very easy and accessible unlike the rating of moderate

Just a short walk around the Christ the King property. What a peaceful place. Serenity now!

If you don’t have time for a long hike, this one is perfect!

Nice hike

Trying to get to the bottom of Webster's Falls and found that the trail was very difficult to follow because sections of it were muddy and, being the top of a sheer cliff, extremely dangerous. Will come back when it's been dry for a few days. Lovely scenery.

Paved trail close to the water. Wide enough for cyclists and pedestrians. Mostly in direct sunlight. Food (Hutches and Barangas) available nearby. Other amenities include the wave action pool (wild-waterworks.com) and beach volleyball (hamiltonsandbox.com). Plenty of parking. Would be better if the trail was closer to the water as the view of the lake is often obstructed by foliage.

the trail was really fun it was short but sweet and the view was amazing when we got to the peak definitely great for families with little kids if you're looking to get real hiking experience this will not be it

We were disappointed as the pictures we have seen showed a beautiful waterfall but there wasn't even a trickle.

nice trail with good scenery, easy flat trails with some slow slopes.

This was a super easy hike coming from Alberta and always hiking in the mountains. My boyfriend and I ran this in and out, stopped for a few photo ops hanging off the cliffs and it was hot and sunny, but the shade and breeze made it a nice hike. I would also do sider this easy and not moderate compared to the other hikes we have completed already this summer. For anyone debating on doing this, it’s short and sweet and the views are pretty nice too!! Way to go Dundas/Hamilton for keeping so much green space!! Love all the trees. In a week or so, the colours will be EPIC!!

Beautiful trail with fall views. Little moderate trail. Hamilton city view at the peak of trail. Special fun with extended trail.
