Lower Chedoke Falls is a Curtain Cascade Waterfall with year round flow. Its height is 6 metres (20 feet) and its crest width is 11 metres (36 feet).
This waterfall was first documented on Mark Harris’s website from the early 2000’s. Lower Chedoke Falls is also featured on the poster “Waterfalls of Hamilton Spring”.
How to get there
Lower Chedoke Falls is located on the east branch of the Chedoke Creek at the east end of the Chedoke Golf Course off the Chedoke Radial Trail. (Park in the Chedoke Golf Course parking lot and follow the Radial Trail eastwards to the newly improved Bruce Trail.) The Iroquoia Bruce Trail Club, with material supplied by the City of Hamilton, completed improvements in autumn 2007 to this section of the Bruce Trail which includes a lookout towards Lower Chedoke Falls. This section of the Chedoke Creek is quite brutal and therefore the Bruce Trail with its lookout is still a fair distance from the falls. The best time to view Lower Chedoke Falls from this location is in winter as the leaves are off the trees.
