Albion Falls is a 19 m (62 ft) classical/cascade waterfall flowing down the Niagara Escarpment in Red Hill Valley, in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. With cascade falls the downpour is staggered into a series of steps causing water to "cascade". The top of the falls are located on Mountain Brow Blvd. The lower-end of the falls can be found at the south-end of King's Forest Park in lower Hamilton by following the Red Hill Creek south towards the Niagara Escarpment.By using our Hamilton route planner, you can arrange your visit to Albion Falls and other attractions in Hamilton.
Albion Falls was once seriously considered as a possible source of water for Hamilton. Rocks from the Albion Falls area were used in the construction of the Royal Botanical Gardens' Rock Garden.
The ravine at the Albion Falls has a legend of the Lover's Leap. The story is that early in the 19th century young Jane Riley, disappointed in love with Joseph Rousseau, stood at the top of a steep cliff not far from thundering Albion Falls and flung herself to the bottom 100 ft (30 m) below. The steep drop has since been dubbed "Lovers' Leap" and many tales have grown up about the suicide.
Nearby attractions include the Bruce Trail, Buttermilk Falls, Devil's Punch Bowl, Felker's Falls, Confederation Park (via Red Hill Trail), Mohawk 4 Ice Centre at Mohawk Sports Park, scenic views of lower Hamilton, King's Forest Golf Course and Park, Gage Park and Hamilton Children's Museum.
Albion Falls reviews
Great view from the top. Lots of free parking nearby. Even saw 2 security guards. Busy at certain times. Overall worth a visit. more »
There are three parking areas for the falls: one on the actual viewing platforms, another across the street, another by the Red Hill Trail. All three are crazy overcrowded with vehicles blocking each.... more »
Beautiful waterfalls. So easy to get to with parking nearby. I consider this the number option for a weekend day trip from Toronto. Guests who visit me from Toronto are always impressed! There are also easy hiking trails nearby.
The falls were great to see up close when we were there years ago. It was a popular spot and we enjoyed being on the rocks next to them. But, now you can't get close enough to have a good view. There are areas you can hike around on top though. Good that they are trying to keep people safe. But, don't bother making the trip just to see these falls as they're not accessible any longer.
