Fantastic view of the waterfall. You can walk 3 different routes depending on how fit you are. But is is only a 5 min walk to get to the waterfall. This is on a slight slope.

This is just up the road from Muckross House, and frankly was more impressive as far as I'm concerned.

Wow - we hiked to the top - the views of house and gardens below was awesome. You can see the three lakes and the mountains across the valleys
