It's not myth but turned out to be a lot more difficult than I expected. As soon as you go pass the six mile Creek's loop, trail became unmarked and with branches to climb over. To get to the falls, once you get to see the second dam at the end of the loop, you have to go back and detour through the trail slightly towards the north (instead of the magical route switching shown in the app.) As you go through some wide and narrow roads, and make pass through Eric's memorial, there will be a steep hill to climb and you can continue towards your right hand side once you are on top. You can also just do the second half without the steep hill climbing by entering Gorges Access from the Penny Lane but there is no parking so you will need to park further out. The falls in the end isn't overwhelmingly awesome but the view and efforts are definitely rewarding and worthwhile.

p.s. The blue blaze markings become spotty towards the second half of the trail.
