It is okay to visit one time. I went on the beginning of May on long weekend. Barbecue was not allowed. Stairs to fall was closed. I prefer to schedule somewhere else on long weekend.

Unknown to most people outside the region, Hamilton has earned the name as "The City of Waterfalls" due to the number of waterfalls flowing over the escarpment which lines across the top of the city. My most memorable falls since my childhood is Albion Falls. Every Good Friday we would walk along the Mountain Brow and climb down the escarpment... More

My Mother's Day treat was a walk to 3 of Hamilton's many waterfalls: Buttermilk, Felkers, and Albion Falls. I look forward to seeing more falls. Beware of ticks -- our dog (on leash at all times) picked up a Brown Dog Tick while on our walk.

The city earns its name - and there are many waterfalls on hiking trails. Try giving the Bruce Trail guide a Google for more info. Also double check to see if a specific waterfall with a trail is open--they can be closed due to weather or repairs on the path.

The waterfalls of Hamilton are spectacular! To see them is breathtaking and very enjoyable! Some have a nice hike to get to them and on a nice day nothing is better! Grab your camera and go see for yourself!

Grab your camera and head out to one of Hamilton's many waterfalls. Go on line and get all the information you need to visit as many falls as you can. Love to walk through the woods looking for that odd shape tree and hope to find that scanting wild critter run by or just bump into a fellow photographer or... More

I absolutely love to hike in the Hamilton area. Alot of the hikes are challenging but alot are also family friendly and fairly easy for smaller kids. How wonderful to come around a bend in a hike to be greeted by a beautiful waterfall? Can't beat it!

Price is free and there are lots to choose from. I would highly recommend going with a day or two of a rain storm so you have lots of water going over the falls. Base of Limeridge Road has the best ribbon falls of any I have ever seen.

Just because Hamilton is generally the Olive Garden of Ontario doesn't mean it has nothing to offer you. The mountain might be grey as a sick person's face and downtown might be a good place for you to get yourself knifed but if you're in the mood for a good old-fashioned waterfall, then get your running shoes on! I'm not... More
