Waterfall Region: Hamilton
Chedoke Creek   Latitude, Longitude:
(What do these stats mean?)
This waterfalls a long ramp that hugs the steep narrow gorge eroded into the side of the Escarpment. Unfortunately, it is surrounded by thick vegetation, and without a vertical section, it is difficult to view. But there is a new viewing platform, which I have yet to visit, that apparently provides for better views. This is also a good spot to visit because it is right next Westcliffe Falls. Not this second waterfall is easy to visit either. Easier to view are the lower falls for each of these. These two waterfalls are virtually side by side, where these two streams come together at the base of the falls. They can only be viewed through the fence. Access is either from the parking lot beside Chedoke Golf Course, or from the very long metal staircase leading from the small park above (at Scenic Drive and Upper Paradise Rd). Even though the viewing isn't great and exploring is difficult (actually a little dangerous, to be honest), this is an important waterfall spot to visit in Hamilton. The staircase has hundreds of steps so you can join the others getting a good workout within earshot of the falls.   (updated June 20, 2014).
