About this Waterfall

Found just upstream from the parking lot for the Chedoke Civic Golf Club. You can see this falls from the metal staircase that climbs way up to Chedoke Park. But the view isn't great and the falls is probably now mostly blocked by foliage. If you are careful, you can wander into the woods on the right side of the creek. Look for a break in the fencing and carefully keep right, avoiding steep slopes and drop-offs to the river below. If you are careful, you will pop out at the base of this nice falls.

Even though the stream appears out of a concrete culvert (not uncommon in Hamilton), you can get some nice photos. The stream flows year round. This isn't a trip for young children or people that aren't fit. Apparently the city is considering the construction of a walkway into the falls.
