This 19-m. cascade waterfall with a Lover's Leap can be reached via several walking trails.
885 Mountain Brow Blvd, Hamilton, ON L8W 1R6, Canada
"Albion Falls is easily one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Hamilton, rippling over the Niagara Escarpment in Red Hill Valley. This incredible cascade waterfall you won’t soon forget stands 18 metres wide and 19 metres tall with the water tumbling over rock that’s transformed into steps and shelves over time. Although there’s no access to the bottom, Albion Falls is visible from two viewing platforms, so you can admire the gorgeous waterfall while being surrounded by lush greenery."
"You'd need to travel a long way beyond Hamilton to find a cascade waterfall as beautiful as this one. Safety concerns have reduced access to the foot of the falls, but the viewing platforms sill make for excellent photo opportunities of this natural wonder. The photo ops are endless at Tiffany Falls."
"Super pretty waterfall here, as the Red Hill Creek tumbles over steps and shelves carved out of the rock over time. There are lots of ways to see Albion Falls and get in a short or long hike, and two different viewing platforms. There is no below-falls access or access at the bottom of the falls."

Comprising 2 waterfalls, this unique, bowl-shaped gorge features colorful layers of stratified rock.
"Besides its astounding natural beauty, the highlight of the Devil’s Punchbowl falls is the 450 million years of history it preserves in its geological formation. Different layers and colors of rocks reveal the evolution of earth through these years. This 37 meter waterfall at the Niagara Escarpment is well known for its unparalleled grandiose and beauty."
"This tall thin waterfall pours over a deep multi-coloured gorge that's a history lesson in geology and one of the most stunning natural formations along the Niagara Escarpment. Look for the huge cross perched nearby for more spectacular views of Stoney Creek and Hamilton Harbour."
"This one might be a bit on the difficult side for young families, but we thought we would include it for the picture alone. Aside from the unique rock formations, a variety of birds can be seen in the vicinity."
