Project Chedoke – Falls, Stairs and Trails
This location is sponsored by Cogeco.
PLEASE NOTE: We have had such an incredible response for this location this year compared to past years, that we ask that you also help out further West along the trail near Sanitorium and Eastward towards Dundurn. Please also remember there are several waterfall areas along the trails that need your help. Most of the litter is not on the trail it self but on the side of the escarpment where people throw it thinking it will be out of site from anyone’s view. We would also be happy to provide you with supplies if you have another location of your own in mind. Thank you.
From the bottom of the escarpment you can park in Chedoke Golf Course parking lot and walk East along the Radial Trail. We will be located slightly up the trail just outside the entrance to the falls and picking up garbage and debris along the trail. Its a fun hike. See the map below for details on the Project Chedoke Falls Stairs and Radial Trail.
Chedoke Falls is located in the middle of the city on the top of the escarpment. It has been confined to an underground channel and emerges from a culvert just before reaching the edge. From the top it is located between Upper Paradise and Garth Streets where Scenic Dr meets Denlow Ave. There is no safe access to the bottom of the falls from the top of the escarpment.
Once the waterfall lands, the creek runs to a second set of falls before being forced back underground to accommodate the Chedoke Golf course.
This is just one of several creeks that have been diverted underground which run through lower Hamilton.
Also included at this site are Westcliffe and Cliffview Falls just to the West of the stairs.
