I think we went at a bad time. Things still looked a little rough due to the winter months. I would try to go during summer months maybe things will look a little better and the trail will be picked up by then.

I go here all the time, I love everything about it. The freedom, The adventure, The thrill. Climbing into the gorge where used to be an old place where the British threw off horses, is a magical experience. Besides the fact the stairs are on a complete slant. I still recommend it.

My family and I decided to take a hike and noticed some stairs so we took them to the bottom which is about 12 flights. Coming back up is tough but when you are down there it is wonderful and peaceful.

So many stick to just the falls - do yourself a favor and get away from the crowds! This is a great trail that you can make as easy or difficult as you want.

The power and speed of the rushing water is quite awe inspiring. I was with a group of teenage girls and they enjoyed just standing by the water and watching the churning water for quiet awhile.
