Another surprise waterfall in the City of Toronto. Ok, this is nothing special at all, as the falls are no more than a metre high or so. This little creek has eroded down to bedrock, and when it reaches a more resistant layer, a tiny waterfall is formed.

I have not yet visited, but this could be a neat little find for someone that can't easily get out of the city. I expect that flows drop in summer. Have you visited?

The driving directions lead to the bend in Chapman Rd, which heads west from Scarlett Rd. Due to the presence of a school here, there are restrictions on parking at certain times of the day (signs say 8-5 from Monday to Friday, though this could change). On the north side of the bend, a trail leads into Chapman Park. I dont have the exact location of the falls, but it is likely somewhere within 100 m upstream or downstream. Let me know if you find it.
