A magical place to visit! A decent asend on the way up! Wear proper shoes.
A bit of a steep walk to get down to the falls but a wonderfully beautiful spot. The platform with a view of the falls has the river running right by it.
Bit of a drive down the dirt road and only a small car park (that does not always accommodate all the visitors). The steps down to the falls are very steep and numerous (may not be suited for all ages or abilities), but the walk at the base of the falls is nice and worth the visit.
As a photographer it's better to go there very early to avoid the crowds and to get the best light.
Beautiful waterfall worth the drive - short but steep walk down.
