   About this Waterfall

Waterfall Region: Eastern    County: Hastings    Near: Bancroft

Watercourse: York River   Latitude, Longitude: 45.0832, -77.7478

(What do these stats mean?)

You can find Farm Chute by following the York River further downstream from Egan Chute, which is much closer to the Highway, and thus much easier to visit. A path on the east side of the river leads to the Chute. I haven't visited myself. At times the path appears to veer away from the river, but you are never more than about 200 m from the river. Expect a big swing to the west. Total hike is probably about 2.5 km. If you visit, please let me know what it's like!  (updated June 20, 2014).
