(What do these stats mean?)

This is a complex cascade waterfall with a total height of 10 metres (33 ft.) and a crest width of 1.2 m (4 ft.) where it comes out from a large storm sewer pipe but it widens to 6 metres (20 ft.). It is located on a tributary of the Chedoke Creek. In 1908 there was a creek at the top; however sometime afterwards, the creek was enclosed into a storm sewer system to allow for development on the mountain. To reach Mountview Falls the easiest way is to park in the small parking lot on Scenic Drive (Hamilton mountain) at the west end where Scenic Drive makes a 90 degree turn southward towards Mohawk Rd. From the parking lot follow the path to the Chedoke Radial Trail and go eastward. Mountview Falls is the second waterfall along the trail (the first is Upper Princess Falls). It is located upstream of a manmade channel which runs to the base of the waterfall. (*Thanks to Joseph Hollick for sharing this description*).  (updated 20-Jun-14).
