“wonderful walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

So beautiful walking along the river to the waterfall, but needs a few hours to walk all the way, otherwise take a canoe, which is so relaxing with a little exercise. During the summer the water is lovely and warm, fabulous for swimming in.

“A Pleasant Morning with the Canoe.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

It took the four of us the whole morning to cmplete the route. The rowing in the canoe was nice but a bit too long. We stopped one stop before the last one and started walking in the woods. The walk started on the ground among the trees and then on a very long series of wooden bridges, and was very pleasant. The goal was reaching the waterfall, which was quite impressive. Then, we had to go all the way back. The round trip took us about three and a half hours.

“Contact Eden Adventures”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Eden Adventures is based out of the National Park and will rent canoes, help organize abseiling and so forth. They were friendly and accommodating to a single traveller. I rented a canoe and went up the river to where the path continues up another 30 minutes to the waterfall. Beautiful trip, easy hike on a well kept series of boardwalks.

A great way to take in all the natural splendor of the area is to drive around and visit the bid hides and hiking trails.
