I could hear the water fall, but I didn’t see it ... so disappointed 😞 But I made the Bruce trail all the way ... is very short and easy (I’m from Chile, we have huge mountains). I hope to find the way next time

This waterfall was difficult to find at first but we managed. You start on an actual trail and have to go through unstable rocks to get to this waterfall. You’ll first get to lower Chedoke and have to hike around this to get to Upper...More

If you're interested in going to the bottom of the falls - I would say the trip is nice to do but I would recommend NOT doing it on your own as it is not easy to get across the river sometimes without slipping or...More

I will say Chedoke falls is beautiful to see, but the bottom portion is completely off limits now. I have been to the bottom of Chedoke falls a handful of times. This hike is not for children, elderly, people with mobility issues or animals. We...More

Lovely waterfall with an otherworldly feel that you can even get behind. Due to the bit of extra effort required to get there the volume is quite sparse.

You can go in the water but not deep enough to swim. You can dunk yourself in the waterfall.
