Great place to stop and enjoy the view of the falls! There are wonderful trails a short walk away and the ability to follow the Rail Trail across the street as well. It’s a nice place to start an afternoon adventure of hiking and site...More

Have always loved Mount Albion Falls. truly the most beautiful waterfall in Hamilton. Just too bad you cant get up close anymore due to safety concerns. Now fenced off

Very picturesque place in Hamilton. I suggest walking in from the park entrance by the Redhill hwy. Kids love the adventure.

This is a beautiful hike, it's not very challenging in my opinion, that is, the main hike to the falls. I am sure there are different routes, we will explore them this summer.

An awful lot of people trying to climb around the barricades. Neighbourhood not set up nor pleased with the volume of cars trying to park. This should not be advertised as a tourist destination, the volume of crowds totally ruins it.

They had the walk down to the falls blocked off but that was fine by me. We had pretty good views from the two observation decks at the top parking area. It's pretty spectacular.

Albion falls (and the nearby Buttermilk falls) would be nice, but they're right by the road and almost impossible to get a good view of without doing something stupid and/or dangerous. There have been countless police and fire department rescues here and DOZENS of deaths...More

For generations entire families would take the path to the bottom of the falls, grandparents and little kids included, an easy hike. That is, until Hamilton's mayor decided to fence the entire place off and charge $10,000 fines to anyone who ventures near. Terrible money...More

Still flowing full speed in early October. With the added colors of early autumn, it is a sight to see. We had a great picnic on one of the seats overlooking the falls with the bright sun warming us up.

For me from the top or side. However, i have some mobility issues and recommend you take photos that you feel are of interesting framing and at the same time are not risking your safety.

At the falls it's pretty hard for a picnic unless you don't mind eating on the rocks. You can simply bring a cloth for the floor but there are no garbage bins at the falls. To keep the falls clean and keep the animals away... More
