This is just a nice casual walk along the base of the Falls. Its a nice scenic walk but you won't be upset if you don't have time for it.

What a great day trip for those looking for challenges and exercise! Wear good walking shoes and walking sticks to assist those who may need some extra support. Bring water along, as the trails can be challenging. Beautiful trees and rocks. A real rainforest atmosphere.
