About Darnley Cascade

Unlike many of the tall plunge waterfalls in Hamilton, this one is much lower, and wider. There is a 100-200 m bedrock riverbed leading upstream from the falls to a dam at the Christie Lake Reservoir. You can explore the river bed when flows are low. The hulking remains of an old mill sit just downstream of the falls. This is an interesting overall site to explore - it's not just about the waterfall in this case. The only downside is that there is no parking at the site. You will be towed. To be safe, drive 500 m to the east and park in the free gravel lot on the south side of the road. Fortunately it's a very nice walk along a picturesque road. More in our book.
