About Cataract Falls

Also referred to as Church's Falls or just the Cataract. The Credit River has eroded quite a deep and broad gorge here. The waterfall is a nice example of the plunge class, with a resistant caprock projecting well over top of the weaker shale below. Unfortunately, a large concrete retaining wall above the falls tarnishes what is still a very pretty waterfall. Drive to the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park, which is found off McLaren Rd, about 1.5 km south of Hwy 124. Park in the lot, pay your fee, and follow the 20 min walk to the falls. NOTE, while this is a beautiful falls, visiting it up close has been a challenge since a viewing platform was removed for safety reasons. A temporary viewing area exists, but hopefully a more long-term solution is found. Getting to the base of the falls is a real challenge. It can be done, but involves a long hike. Finally, if you were thinking of finding a place to park in the village along the west side of the river, forget it. There is no parking along any of the village streets. Use the pay parking lot.
