We were here during a wet season and the falls was roaring with all the volume. We were to photograph, which was difficult with all the mist kicked up by all the water. Short walk from the welcome station. Enjoy!

Walked to Russell Falls. Slight rain around but held off enough for the walk. The mist made the walk through the bush well worth while. Easy walk and enjoyable

The pathway to russell falls is short and easy, you could continue to walk to Horseshoe Falls. The waterfall is ok but the walk to it is fun, walking under tall trees and fallen logs along the way.

Very leisurely walk through the woods where you'll see much greenery and spot a few cute animals. Highly recommend to continue the walk to the nearby Horseshoe Falls.
