Well worth the effort to get to. Very pretty, was quiet when I went, clean area, some locals were climbing the falls and jumping in- I did not attempt that but it was a nice pool to swim in and possible to swim behind. It is a nice place to take a picnic too! It's a bit of a mission to get to- it was quiet when we went and were weren't sure whether we were going the correct way as there was no one else around- basically just follow the little river up- I would recommend crossing at the top of the first set of mini-falls but people did in many different ways. Just be prepared as it was fairly slippy and if you get on the path (once you've crossed the stream and gone up it a bit) it was incredibly muddy. A rewarding free day out though!

Great spot to hike to and spend the day, nice fresh water pools and wasn't crowded when we went. It is a bit of a hike up to the second and third pools so be prepared.

The waterfalls are great and the water is fantastic, but the walk to and from the falls is a bit slippery. Be prepared for slippery rocks and tree roots, and don't forget your sunscreen.
