After all the rain over the past couple of days/nights the paths on the final approach were pretty soggy - but the “spout” was spectacular! Easy terrain and a simple enough clamber down to the bottom of the waterfall itself. Didn’t find the rocks to be slippy at all but we were wearing good boots. Would recommend for a short stroll.

WalkingGreat!No shade

Absolutely beautiful. If you park at the end of the road (after turning at the private road) it's just under 4miles down to the waterfall and back. You start off walking down the private road and then start the incline up on a gravel path. When you start coming down next to the waterfall there are some rocky parts to climb down that can get slippy when wet. On a lovely sunny day it's a great place to have a picnic (large grassy area at the bottom) and great to jump in at the waterfall and have a swim. (the water is freezing though so would only do this on warm days)

Really enjoyed this walk. The first half is walking down a private road from the parking area to Linhope village, then the climb up starts which is steep in some areas. Once at the spout, the walk down is quite tricky especially in the rain as the rocks ca be very slippery as I experienced! Really worth the look and it’s a fairly quick walk, go take a look!

Highly recommend this walk, a couple steep bits throughout, really easy to follow route. Absolutely worth it once you get to the waterfall at the end. Beautiful little picnic and photo spot nice easy trail back. (backdated review we hiked this in summer 2019)

Was a great day, take some swimming stuff with you, you can dive into the waterfall on a clear day, I have been told you can’t jump in if it’s too shallow so check first.

First to Review

The heavens truly opened when I undertook this trail a year ago, however, it was worth it to see the waterfall in full flow at the end.
