We enjoyed the loop walk we did here, it took us about 40 minutes including stopping to watch the white water rafters. We did not find this walk to be strenuous.

This was worth a short detour and although we didn’t do the full walk, we enjoyed the scenery. Not much in the way of extra facilities.

A lovely hidden spot just off the main road at Okere Falls. I estimate this is a leisurely 50 minute circular walk from car park. Views of the river in parts - may even see some rafters coming down some rapids if you time it...More

Hi the track can all be walked but must take care as in winter track is slippery. Beautiful place amazing walks. Times that it takes depends on the person walking it.
