  • Beautiful location. Worth the hike. Cool spot on a hot day to relax. Water is cold but a nice "pool" to swim around in if you nobody is there fishing.  more »
  • We've visited many beautiful waterfalls during our travels, but the reward in seeing Mossbrae Falls after a perilous (and somewhat illegal) hike makes it that much more special. It is an idyllic spot ...  more »
  • It was quite difficult to locate these falls. Our phone navigator took us round and round, bringing us back to the place we started. We decided to ask a local who told us he could tell us 'how not to ...  more »

  • Great Hike. But Be Careful. Awesome view of the falls. This is a secret waterfalls which is supposed to be forbidden, but all of the enthusiastic people love to explore. Even the locals wants us to go. How do I know? Well, one of the guys in the neighborhood told me how to reach to this point. Parking: As per many blogs, do not park inside the iron gates over there. Do a legal street parking and you will fine to go. Start walking and once you reach the rail tracks let go of your headphones and enjoy the hike. Why no headphones? So that you can hear the train behind you and also enjoy the sound of water n nature. The time I went, I had an impression that trains are not so frequent out there. But I came across at least 4 trains for the whole hike - up and down. And it was getting a bit scary at times, when the space beside the tracks were not a lot. At the end of the hike, it is not very clear where to take the turn to reach the falls. So keep listening for waterfalls, while you are walking along the tracks. And well, the waterfall - you got to be there to feel it. One of the most beautiful place out there.
  • I love this place! The walk along the railroad tracks is cool. Each time we have gone we say we need to go back more often. A must stop if traveling through the area. You’ll need at least an hour to get there and enjoy it for a little bit and get back to the car. Strollers won’t make it and not recommend for elderly or small kids needing assistance. Hope you get to enjoy it!
  • Had a blast here. Good fishing along this stretch of river and the falls is epic!! Enjoy one of the many pictures I took. Follow along on our adventures on IG @tjorton - Cheers!!
  • Beautiful place to meet friendly people from around the world.
  • Love it here! Each time I go, it's like the first time. It is like a whole other world.
