We stumbled upon these falls by accident, but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip! Darius, our greeter and whose family owns the property, was absolutely lovely. Basically a half hour hike to beautiful falls on his family's land. He told us about the second falls which are much grander than the first, but difficult... More

It's a short hike in to the falls, and very beautiful! Plus you can stop in the store for a cold Kabuli after the hike!!

Our guide was Martin. He was wonderful. He told us about the trees, flowers and coffee trees as we walked to the falls. There was one steep section but it did not last very long. Great water falls. Take a wide angle or fish eye camera lens for great pictures

We visited this falls just after the rain had stopped. Very secluded we had the place to ourselves on March Break!!! Just beautiful flora and falls. You would think you were on a made up Hollywood set it was so perfect. Definitely worth the cost. A hidden treasure that not a lot of people get to!

Stop by Spanny's Disco to pay the fee to cross his land. This was WAY cooler than emerald pools. Not too hard of a walk, just a little climb down to the pools. Make sure you hit both falls.

This blows away emailed pool and is worth more than the small fee. The hike to the falls is fun and challenging. The climb over to Pennrice falls is worth the challenge.

...but double the waterfalls! - on the way to Belles (penrice) first bar on the left from Pond Casse roundabout - need owners permission, and a little donation towards upkeep of trail. very pretty trail, lovely cold pools - take something to keep warm if hanging around.

The hike down to Spanny Falls is well worth the mud you will encounter! Wear appropriate shoes! We recommend Keens or the like! The hike is easy but can be slippery. The falls are absolutely beautiful! For the truly adventurous & fit, you can climb up to see the upper falls via rope (not for the unfit or those afraid... More
