This short trail out to Philosopher Falls is worth making a detour for. When the falls are heavily flowing after some rain you'll catch the exhilarating beauty and refreshing mist as it dusts the lush green forest. The trail is known for cartoon-like fungi sprouting all along the way year-round, leaving a magical encounter with the landscape to be remembered long after you leave.

Spectacular walk to the falls. Falls were nice but have seen better. The track in and out is worth it.

Great shorter walk (About 1 hour with photo stops). Track weaves through mossy trees down to the river. Steep stair decent to falls
