Summary

The largest and most impressive of the waterfalls in the North East Dundas Tramway area outside of Montezuma Falls, Frazer Falls is a spectacular waterfall tumbling 40-50 metres several hundred metres upstream of the crossing of Frazer Creek on the main track. While it is not marked on maps, there is a track of sorts leading to the falls, however it is often very overgrown and if not for markers on trees it would be just about impossible to follow. At times the markers are not always regularly placed either, so a GPS is required for the hike. 

To reach the start of this track, continue for about 400 metres from the crossing over Frazer Creek coming from Montezuma Falls, until three pink ribbons tied to a tree on the left mark the start of the track towards the falls. The route immediately climbs steeply up a ridge above the creek’s western bank, with little respite until it arrives at the top of the falls after a walk of about one hour and a climb of nearly 200 metres. There are several places where fallen trees and thick cutting grass obscure the faint trail on the way up, so it it important to be prepared for some bush bashing to progress forward. Once at the top of the falls, two trails lead off, one heading upstream to eventually reach the Frazer Creek Hut, and the other heading over a short ridge on its way down to the base of the falls. The route down is reasonably well marked thanks to metallic markers on trees and wooden stakes in the ground, however the surface underfoot is largely unmodified, making for a very steep, dicey descent down. Extreme care must be taken descending the often crumbly ground, however the effort is well worth it for the spectacular view of Frazer Falls the track comes out at.

One thought on “Frazer Falls (18km)

  1. Trail is marked with ribbons tied to trees, some areas may need a bit of searching for the next ribbon, but it’s not too bad. Doable it without GPS. Track is very steep, so a good level of fitness is required, but the waterfall is definitely worth the hike
