Bad news if you use Hamilton's Waterfront Trail

If you head down to Hamilton's Waterfront Trail to walk, run, or bike, we have bad news.

The City of Hamilton and the Hamilton Conservation Authority have closed sections of the Waterfront Trail along Lake Ontario due to flooding and erosion caused by high water levels.

City officials say the east end of the Waterfront Trail is closed east of Wild Water Works to the bridge beyond the Waterfront Trail Lookout Point.

There are also restrictions due to damage near the Breezeway Trail at the Burlington Bridge.

The trail will be closed until further notice. Residents are advised to avoid the area.
