Lovely walk through the forest, and easy to find the car park. On a bank holiday it can be very busy but I'd imagine every other day you'd get a nice walk to yourself.

No where to park, not much signage. Fair walk to the waterfall, and wasn’t much of a “waterfall”. Beautiful trees and greenery though.

this is a moderately difficult hike with some steep sections, but mostly shaded. You will hear a lot of birds and see some wonderful trees and waterways. A great way to rejuvente yourself!
