To start the New Year off on a different foot, we decided to go on a three hour hike in the -30 degree Celsius weather! What an adventure! We drove to Albion falls in Hamilton Ontario, located along the Niagara Escarpment and part of the Bruce Trail. Albino Falls is a 19 metre cascade falls, although it was frozen when we visited, so not very cascade-y!
You can access Albion Falls From the Red Hill Valley Parkway. Exit at Bartlett Ave./RR14 Right onto RR81 Left onto Park Rd. Right onto Mud St. Left on Paramount Dr. (turns into Stone Church) Right onto Pritchard Rd. You will find 3 different parking lots to choose from.
People have been injured here so be careful when you are hiking along the top of the gorge. It is also possible to slip and become trapped at the bottom, so take every precaution when visiting. You can hike into the valley from the one parking lot, along a marked pathway.
Winter was a great time to visit this falls. Albion is a very popular falls in Hamilton, and it can become quite crowded in the summer months.
Here is a video we made of Albion Falls.
Looks like a great hike, will be sure to check it out when i head that way. Hopefully will be a little warmer by then though! 😊
Hopefully! – 30 is a bit much for sure, even for the incredibly winter hardy.
