The Lower Princess Falls drops over the Niagara Escarpment at Hamilton, right beside the Highway 403 (Chedoke Expressway). If there is a lot of water going over due to rain, it can be well seen by drivers, and is probably the most viewed Hamilton waterfall, although few people know its name.

The Upper Falls, a short way above it, can be seen from the Chedoke Radial Trail which runs along the escarpment here.I have included images of the Upper after a rain and when it is almost dry, as I think the flow difference is interesting.
