We stopped by here on our way back from Craters of the Moon. The falls are absolutely stunning and well worth walking all the way around. Lovely place to spend 10 mins to a full afternoon.

Must visit water fall, the white water gushing gives a impression that milk is flowing. From car park to this place its worth the track. Simply beautiful and must visit with families.

Yes it is possible to ride all the way - there is one small section of steps ( when riding from track starting on Spa Rd) but easy to dismount and carry
