About this Waterfall

NOTE: As of 2019, Chedoke Falls is off-limits. You will be fined if you attempt to visit right now. I have left this page for reference, in the hopes that it will be opened to visitors again.

One of the best-kept secrets of the many falls in Hamilton. Well, at least it was when I first explored in 2000. It is, of course, much better known and publicized now with all the great promotion by the group in Hamilton. Yes, there is a big ugly concrete box culvert at the top. But there is also often a beautiful blue-green plunge pool at the base of this plunge waterfall. Getting to the bottom can be a challenge and shouldn't be attempted unless you are in good shape. The best route is along the right side of the river as you make your way upstream.
