Waterfront Trail Closures

HAMILTON, ON - The City of Hamilton and the Hamilton Conservation Authority have closed sections of the Hamilton Harbour Waterfront Trail and Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail due to flooding, debris and erosion caused by high water levels. 

The following areas have been temporarily closed:

  • Hamilton Harbour Waterfront Trail from Bayfront Park to Princess Point. (The York Street High-Bridge stairs to the Bayfront Trail are also closed.)
  • Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail: 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.

These areas will be closed until water levels subside. Residents are advised to avoid these areas. We will continue to monitor daily and share updates as they are available.
