Princess Falls-Chedoke Radial Trail

Princess Falls

From Hwy 403 take the Aberdeen Ave. exit and then turn right onto Queen St. S. Follow Queen St. S. up the Escarpment, where it will turn into Beckett Dr. and then Garth St. Turn right onto Denlow Dr. Follow this road until it becomes Scenic Dr. and park at the Chedoke Radial Trail parking lot on your right. Follow the Chedoke Radial Trail / Bruce Trail east to the waterfall.
It is the first waterfall that you see and it is a smaller one but very nice.

View along the trail 
Chedoke Radial Trail 
was very nice walking along
with so much of the escarpment walls on the one side
was just nice looking at

 I liked all the escarpment walls

This bridge I thought was different looking

Mountview Falls
This is the second falls you will come across the way we were going on the trail.
But there was no water today when we saw it which is to the right on the bridge
I have seen photos of this when it does have a nice flow but maybe next time we will see it
Went back on the trail to head back to the car
