Grate easy walk from the town and get to walk through abit of the residents area then a really cool walk to the water fall wheb you get to the main gate Water fall is grate i went when its been dry and there was still a really nice stream coming down would be amazing with abit of rain fall When you get there if you look to the right you will see a steep look track I went up there and followed the stream and when you reach the end there is a second smaller water fall but the formation is really cool Be warned its going trough Bush me and the dog did it and there is vines, Bush, fallen trees you have to walk across but end result is grate if you liek a challenge I hopefully have a photo of the second one and I'll post it

We accidentally drove up to the gate to walk up to the waterfall. I wouldn’t suggest walking up the road as there is nothing to see. Waterfall is ok, probably better walks in the area

Very easy walk up from the town through a nice neighborhood. Walking on the dirt road not very exciting but ok. Waterfall was pretty but not huge.

A fun easy hike from town. Most is on a country road. Only last 10 mins to the waterfall was on trail.

der Wasserfall ist wunderschön. Generell die kleine Region um den Wasserfall hat etwas mystisches und schönes. Der Weg wird begleitet von dem Fluß, wodurch man eine ständige Geräuschkulisse von rauschendem Wasser hat, nur wird dadurch der Weg auch sehr schlammig und rutschig. Man kann auch mit dem Auto direkt bis zum misty Peaks Reserve fahren, wodurch man sich den recht steilen Anstieg in der Stadt spart. kommt man jedoch in der Saison, wird hier vermutlich nicht genügend Parkmöglichleiten geboten.

highlights of the trek: https://youtu.be/ZMm7uKb2aXw genuinely it was one the easiest trek I have ever done. it is doable even for 10 years old kid. It took me 40 minutes to get up there and probably 30 minutes to get down. I tried to go beyond the waterfall but as it was raining, I slipped many time there. Most of the trail was muddy though. Surely It is beautiful.

Most of the trail is dirt road. Part of the trail involves hopping three fences, very easy. Beautiful flower garden. The actual trail is great; the waterfall is perfect, cold.
