Cascade in the 'City of Waterfalls'. Albion Falls, Hamilton, Ontario
The spectacular Albion Falls is just one of more than 130 waterfalls that give the city of Hamilton in Ontario, its sobriquet: Waterfall Capital of the World. The city eagerly welcomes visitors to share in its natural beauty, and there are hiking and biking trails around the waterfalls as well as guided tours. On the edge of Lake Ontario, Hamilton lies 87 kilometres northwest of Niagara, a town that constantly brags about its own waterfall.
As you can see here, Albion Falls is a stepped waterfall with cascading flows that fan out spectacularly. It’s 19 metres high (and almost as wide), and there are two viewing platforms at the top for jaw-dropping photo ops. Just obey the signs and watch your footing: There is some fencing, but the ground can be unstable near the cliff edges.
