Albion Falls is one of the most picturesque waterfalls in the region and one of the city’s most popular. The Red Hill Creek in the east end’s King’s Forest tumbles over rock that’s been formed over time into steps and shelves, fanning outwards into a beautiful cascade of rushing water.

HIGHLIGHTS
----------------

- Albion Falls is a stepped jewel, classified as a cascade as it ripples over the Niagara Escarpment.

-It is almost as wide (18 metres) as it is tall (19 metres).

- It is visible from two viewing platforms, but there is currently no access to the bottom.

- Rocks from around the falls were used in the construction of Hamilton’s famous Rock Garden, a National Historic Site at Hamilton’s Royal Botanical Gardens.

HIKE NEARBY:A leisurely hike around the Albion Falls area (about 6km) is a great way to take in the views. Park at Buttermilk Falls in the Oak-Knoll parking lot, which is on Mountain Brow Blvd north of Limeridge Road E.

- Take the Mountain Brow Side Trail towards Albion Falls where you can view the falls from a couple of lookouts. Walk along the road to Albion Falls. At the Mud Street parking lot take the Bruce Trail into the Red Hill Valley. This will bring you to Glendale Falls.

- Head back the same way or hike the Mountain Brow Access Trail to the Oak Knoll Park parking lot. Expect a workout!

- A nice cycling route can take you from downtown Hamilton up to Albion Falls. Then head up the Escarpment Rail Trail from Corktown Park, which leads you up the mountain to King’s Forest.
