Did this one as a loop. Hiked the Ho Chi Minh trail from the gliderport down to the beach, walked north on the beach to this trail, down the narrow canyon to Mottram Falls, and then back up to the gliderport via a steep climbing trail that passes directly above the waterfall. Very cool & rugged sandstone canyons, caves, lagoons, and waterfalls. Precarious in many spots, watch your footing. Highly recommend!
