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

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.

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.

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 !!

Walked north half of the trail. Nice and fairly easy trail with few neat side trails to explore along the way. The trail is paved for a big part of it.

it was a bit confusing and we ended up following the Brice Trail and had to cross the golf course to get back on track. Still, it was beautiful. Some hills. I would say not easy - maybe moderate. Suggestion - change type of trail to a "point to point" trail, as there are major access points along the trail

it was kind of confusing and we ended up walking off the trail and going on a golf course.We eventually found the way... It was beautiful. Some hills. I would say not easy but not hard.
