Sitting above Russell Falls, Horseshoe Falls can be visited by a return walk from Russell Falls or as part of the Three Waterfalls Circuit. I would recommend the latter as it is a very pleasant walk that can also include the Tall Trees circuit.

Beautiful forest scenery and a pretty waterfall.

Despite an arduous two hundred and thirty-seven steps upward, the Horseshoe Falls, which actually sits just above Russell Falls, is arguably the more scenic of the two falls. It offers itself as a sight like the quiet and shy sibling who is in reality the more charming of the two.
Very photogenic, irrespective of the amount of water flowing.

These falls are above Russell Falls and it is a bit of a climb over many stairs to get up to them but if you take your time it is worth it. These falls certainly are not as spectacular as Russell Falls but nevertheless are quite picturesque. By going up this far it also gives you access to the tall trees walk.

Such a peaceful and tranquil spot with a very unique waterfall. A short walk past Russell Falls (an absolute must-see) it's not to be missed. We were on a tight schedule so only did a 45 minute return walk to see the two falls--in hindsight we would have devoted the whole morning to do one of the longer hikes.

Easy addition to the Russell Falls walk as long as you can handle some stairs. Wasn't a lot of water happening when we visited so I don't think we saw the best of it.

We visited as part of the longer Russell Falls/Horseshoe Falls/Lady Barron Falls/Tall Trees walk. You can do Russell Falls and Horseshoe together without a great deal of effort but if you do the whole circuit be prepared for a LOT of stairs.

From the same trail that leads to the Russell Falls the trail heads upwards with a lot of steps up to the viewing platform. It is very well constructed and doable by all however there are a lot of steps so take your time. The falls themselves are nice and probably more impressive after heavy rains.

Second Falls along Mt Field NP is Horseshoe Falls. Another beautiful falls well worth a visit. Beware there are many steps on the way to these falls so take it easy if you have knee problems. Great track though with even more steps to follow along the way.

If you are able to walk and are sure footed, taking the walk to Horseshoe Falls is a must. Being Autumn parts of the track were a little muddy and I could see where some people had slipped before me, so I was super cautious in those areas (thank you to those who left their mark to point out the slippery bits!). I felt really good walking up to the falls this time, as there have been many times that Ive walked up there and felt really unfit, but managed it wonderfully this time, so YAY for me. Who needs a gym where you watch a bunch of other sweaty people in a boring room. Head out to the rainforest, still get to see some sweaty people but mostly you will be distracted by the beauty of your surroundings.

This fall is less gorgeous than Russell falls. Nevertheless, it is only a bit of walk more. It was a great walk and it was very cooling. An enjoyable walk indeed to breathe in fresh air!
