Interesting walk, can see it being easy and pleasant during a dry summer period but rain makes the river crossing impassable and therefore have to traverse higher up the valley to find a rock to hop over to the other side. Most paths turn into mini rivers and the rest are extremely muddy. At some places the path stops all together and you have to guess where to go next. Again, could be different in a dry day but would not put this walk down as “easy”, as compared to most moderate walks I’ve completed on here, this was must more technically challenging

HikingGreat!MuddyRocky

Nice view of the waterfalls. Easy going down to the different waterfalls. Muddy at different places and quite rocky and scramble at other part of the trail. Fantastic place to be at the bottom by the waterfall. Very steep at times going back up but it’s worth it. Done it with 4 kids 13, 10, 8 and 4 yrs old. Take food and spare clothes and shoes. You’ll need to get change before going back into your vehicles. LOL

Pretty views but when you reach the bottom of the waterfall by the bridge the path is not really a path. Very difficult to climb, narrow, muddy, rocky, overgrown and hard to even find a path. Do not recommend.

First to Review

Trecked out left from the main falls today, following the route. The falls were amazing and views of the mountains incredible. But the cross over back into the forest over the river was impassable maybe okay at much lower water/SUMMER. Had to make it back through the rough boggy trails along river to main waterfall access bridge before sundown!
