We walked this the other day just after a rain storm which made all the waterfalls even more spectacular than usual. Wonderful walk through temperate rain forest along river and gorges, many paths and loops to take can make it a 30 minute walk or a 2 hour walk. My dog also loved it. On a sunny day you get... More

Highly recommended but be forewarned the washrooms are only the basic outhouse format. This is roughing it compared to Rathtreavor.

I have been here camping a few times, and the campgrounds are well kept and spacious. But the best part of this park is walking between the upper and lower falls. The upper falls can be accessed from the parking lot and would be somewhat accessible for those with physical disabilities. The lower falls is more difficult to reach -... More

Short walk from the main Parking Lot to the Upper Falls. The bridge over the falls gives an excellent view and you can really get a sense of the amount of water rushing through especially after some rain. Once you cross the bridge, you can take a right (instead of following the loop left) for a short distance to see... More

Good location not too far from town., easy to find. Trails are easy to navigate, easy to walk around. Would be appropriate to bring younger kids who can walk. Lots of greens, the falls were also pretty.

It's a nice way to spend a few hours in the outdoors. The falls are nice and the walk around the trails is fairly easy. All ages can do it. There's ares were you can swim with easy access. There are tables if you want to bring something to eat. It's also a nice drive to get there.

I enjoy going there for jogs. Rain or shine, a beautiful area with lots to see.Be prepared for a bit more of a walk then you might be used to. Roots and hills make these paths a "trip" to remember.

Visited the park when our daughter and family were camping there. A nice park with all the necessary facilities for camping. A little bit of a drive but then if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of traffic then this is the place. The falls are bit of a walk from the camp site but well... More

On a regular sunny day the water shines as though it was made of emeralds. We just saw it and decided to stop by, but I still have yet to see water like that again.
