About Albion Falls

Albion Falls is one of the most famous of the many waterfalls in Hamilton. The waterfall is composed of two very steep ramp class falls. Each waterfall is perhaps 7 to 8 m in height, falling at an angle of about 80 degrees. A small ledge of thicker dolostone separates the two falls. Large blocks of dolostone litter the base of the waterfall, having broken off of the massive layers found further up the stratigraphic sequence. If you walk east along Mud St over Red Hill Creek and descend the staircase on the right bank of the river, you can get to a more intimate view of the base of the falls. Unfortunately, access to the base of the falls is strictly prohibited and has been for several years. Don't do it... you WILL likely get ticketed $750. The city is working on installing new access ramps and viewing platforms.
