Chute , sans devoir marché vraiment. Chemin pour y aller en auto beaucoup plus difficile avec un petit auto!

The waterfall was beautiful but the 6.4km road out and back was not worth it. Lots of potholes!

An easy short walk to a beautiful waterfall!

A nice spot to get out and stretch your legs for a quick walk to a swimming hole! The waterfall is usually dried up a lot during late summer months, but still very beautiful. Worth it for sure.

Not so much of a "hike" as a short walk on a gravel road to a pretty waterfall and swimming hole. Lovely on a hot day! As others have mentioned, it's very popular so hard to find a quiet moment to enjoy/photo.

Easy walk to a pretty waterfall. The road is gravel but well maintained. It’s not at all twisty as described - certainly nothing alarming at the posted 30 kph speed limit! The parking lot is at the end of the road and so easy to find. Remember to bring your swimsuit on a warm summer day. The pool at the bottom of the falls is inviting. While swimming is a great use of the pool, the swimmers make getting a good photograph pretty much impossible in the middle of the day when it’s busier. Worth the drive and short walk.

Not really a trail, a short walk to a beautiful waterfall. Tea coloured water is swimmable, but I would recommend water shoes (lots of smooth rocks, more easily navigated with footwear!). The road out to the parking area is very long and winded, but it would be very difficult to get confused or lost as it is well signed and the parking area is at the very end.

It was okay but the road to it was insanely bendy and difficult to navigate.

this while not a hiking trail this was a huge part of my childhood every year (many times) going to swim at Mary Ann falls. in good weather it's a load of fun. easy walk down from the parking lot and stairs right down to just about near the water.
