  • At our visit there were working between parking and park, so difficult and not so pleasant hiking. Park itself has nice high trees, the suspension bridge and waterfall are.

  • Went via trout hatchery which was self guided..... fed some finderlings which kids loved. The falls were really great and easy 1km with a super scary suspension bridge at the end!  more »
  • Beautiful walk through forest and the sounds of the falls, birds and river. Not a long walk to the falls, some stairs, benches along the way. Be prepared to get wet at some times of year. The view on ...  more »

  • Loved this little spot, highly recommend walking around the far side and really exploring the trails. There's some wonderful places you can find, with lovely view points across the river. You've got to take your camera when visiting, you'll find some great spots. Just be careful when you head out on the rocks
  • Great walk with well established trails and basic facilities. Trails doable for small kids, but people with mobility issues should wait until the trails are clear of fallen trees
  • Good trail! Amazing lookouts and great views. We (group of 3 friends) visited the falls on a sunny winter evening (around 4.45pm). Lot of parking spots and publuc washrooms available in the parking lot. It was Not a great time to be here as it got dark around 5.15pm. Just us with another group of 3 in the area. It was quite and could hear the falls from a distance. Wear good shoes as the trail could get slippery. The hanging/suspension bridge offers a good view of falls/mountains around. We loved it! It was worth it.
  • Great location. Central to amenities. Biking, hiking, relaxing, walks. Excellent staff.
  • This place is beautiful so matter what season. Easy to moderate hiking and stunning nature.
