Hamilton’s Albion Falls has joined the ranks of some of the world’s most stunning waterfalls with its appointment to Mashable.com’s list of the world’s 15 Jaw-Dropping Waterfalls Worth Chasing. Other waterfalls that made the list include Niagara Falls, Argentina’s Iguazu Falls, Wyoming ‘s Lower Falls of the Yellowstone, California’s Upper Yosemite Falls and Venezuela’s Angel Falls. Albion Falls made the list as a stunning, 19-metre cascade waterfall with a crest of 10 metres.

Hamilton is home to more than 100 waterfalls, and with one of the highest number of waterfalls of any urban area of its size, has been called the Waterfall Capital of the World. Many of the waterfalls are found along the Niagara Escarpment and Bruce Trail, and can be easily accessed from groomed trails and viewing areas. Most waterfalls are situated beside steep drops and ground can become unstable. Residents and visitors should exercise extreme caution when visiting Hamilton’s waterfalls, and should aim to enjoy the waterfalls as safely as possible. At Albion Falls, restricted areas are clearly signed and visitors are asked to remain only on authorized paths.

One of the safest and easiest ways to check out Hamilton’s jaw-dropping waterfalls is with a guide, on a Bruce Trail Waterfall Walk. You’ll see a total of 19 stunning waterfalls on the 25-kilometre, two-day hike and 28 waterfalls on the 45-kilometre, five-day hike. Off the trails, you’ll enjoy outstanding local cuisine and overnight accommodations in the area’s best hotels.

To head to Albion Falls on your own, from Hwy 403 take the Lincoln Alexander Parkway exit east across Hamilton Mountain. Exit at Upper Gage Avenue and turn left. Turn right on Mohawk Road East, which will turn into Mountain Brow Blvd. The Oak Knoll Park parking lot is on the left, just before Limeridge Road.

Discover even more of our regions’ spectacular waterfalls.
