PHOTOS. Epic Hamilton Adventure! One Mac student conquers 11 waterfalls: 1 bike, 8 hours, 30 kilometers

Chris Wang is a McMaster student who will soon be moving on. He’s spent four years in Hamilton but was feeling regret about not seeing some of the city’s natural wonders. We are the waterfall capital of Canada, after all.

He decided to set off on an adventure. He mapped out a 30 kilometer route that would take him, his bike and his camera to 11 different waterfalls, plenty of scenery and Battlefield House Museum. It would also leave him more appreciative of the city he’d spent four years living in.

Scroll down for a while and take in the beautiful photos from his trip. Try it out yourself, someday!
