  • Absolutely a beautiful waterfall area! We used David's Adventure Tours to go. If you want an educational experience, head here with David!
  • Upland Savannah Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve very scenic and picturesque of granite rocks, valleys, hills, and tributaries of the upper part of the Macal Rivers.
  • Long travel to get there, but once you do it was great!

  • Lots of beautiful sights to see. A good day trip. A rough ride though.
