After you park your vehicle in the parking lot, you have to walk about 2.9 kms/1.7 miles, on a trail, to the falls. The trail starts off nice and wide but slowly narrows down with lots of rocks. It is worth it to go right...More

Nice hike (it’s an easy walk 40 minutes one-way /2,9 kilometres). Fun to pass behind the falls with our kids. So, for sure you’d better bring a towel ;)

I took my kids on this hike recently when it was 27 degrees. They loved walking behind the waterfall and it was great to get wet to cool off. The section down to the waterfall was steep and I noticed some older people struggling.

The hike is steep to get to these falls but well worth it. You can walk behind the falls and get soaked or just swim at the bottom.

The first half of the trail is double track and flat. You are not in the park yet. As soon as you cross the park boundary, the trail goes to single track and starts to head downhill. Not bad till you get to the top...More

There is a 2.5 km walk into this falls but it is worth the hike. The falls are gorgeous and impressive to behold.

I would go in the afternoon on a hot day. If u want a really interesting shot,u can walk behind,inside the caves and to the other side. The water's cold but u can warm up in the sun.

You can bring your dog as long as it’s on a leash and you pick up after it. There is no charge to visit any of the sights in the park.
