About this Waterfall

Lower Chedoke Falls is located on the east branch of the Chedoke Creek at the east end of the Chedoke Golf Course off the Chedoke Radial Trail. (Park in the golf course parking lot and follow the Radial Trail eastwards to the newly improved Bruce Trail.) The Iroquoia Bruce Trail Club, with material supplied by the City of Hamilton, completed improvements in autumn 2007 to this section of the Bruce Trail which includes a lookout towards Lower Chedoke Falls. This section of the Chedoke Creek is quite brutal and therefore the Bruce Trail with its lookout is still a fair distance from the falls.

The best time to view Lower Chedoke Falls from this location is in winter as the leaves are off the trees. Lower Chedoke Falls has year round flow. Its height is 6m and its crest width is 11m. (*Thanks to Joseph Hollick for writing this description*).
