Excerpt from forksofthecreditinn.com:

The historic Forks of the Credit Inn was built in 1855 in the quaint hamlet of Cataract, Caledon. The building was originally a post office, the DewDrop Inn in the late 1800’s and a general store with speakeasy (hidden upstairs) during prohibition in the early 1900’s. The Cataract Inn was a popular restaurant here until 2006. Recently revitalized, the building is once again a Boutique Inn and new Yoga Retreat Centre in the beautiful Caledon Hills.

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Forks of the Credit Provincial Park, located in Caledon, Ontario, Canada, is part of the Ontario Parks system and is part of the Niagara Escarpment biosphere. The park is on the Bruce Trail. The Credit River runs through the park. Other notable features of the park include a kettle lake and talus slope.

In 1968 the Niagara Escarpment Study recommended that a park be established in the Forks of the Credit area; this recommendation was then accepted by the Government of Ontario. It was officially regulated as a provincial park in 1985.

Excerpt from gowaterfalling.com:

This waterfall is surrounded by ruins from its days as the power source for industry. If you like ruins, that is a plus, but for many it is a minus. The current trails do not allow for great views of the falls. This is not one of the more impressive waterfalls of the Niagara Escarpment. It is roughly between the many Hamilton area waterfalls and the many Owen Sound area waterfalls so it can make a good stop on an extended waterfall tour of Southern Ontario.

Cataract Falls is in Ontario's Forks of the Credit Provincial Park. The park includes rolling terrain, parts of the Niagara Escarpment, and Cataract Falls along the Credit River.

From the parking lot it is a leisurely hike of a couple kilometers through an open rolling countryside that was shaped by glacial action. The Meadow Trail takes you to the river and then along the rim of the gorge to the falls. There are plans for another trail closer to the river, but it looks like it is still under construction.
A stairway takes you down to the top of the falls, and a platform gives you a somewhat obstructed view of the falls. They are trying to fight erosion and the area around the platform is closed off, so trying to get a closer view would be inconsiderate.

This used to be an industrial waterfall and is surrounded by ruins. Above and below the falls the gorge walls have been reinforced with concrete. Personally I find ruins interesting, but for many they will detract from the beauty of the falls.
