My family enjoyed the stroll. Don’t walk down where the arch is as it’s steep there is a proper path on the road side ..

We went with our kids (3+5) from the lower entrance (near the cafeteria). There is a good walking trail of 10 minutes strait to the fall. All around are more trails for walkers, up and down the mountain. Beautiful scenery!

We walked to the waterfalls from the village. It was a very pleasant walk on a warm day with plenty of shade. The path is easy to follow and well maintained but there are a lot of steps so you really need trainers or boots.

We are two adults and a 4.5 y/o. Went there after a rainy day. Parked on the entrance and from there went by foot down to the waterfalls. The way was very steep and slippery. When we got there we watched the waterfall from a...More

It is worth a visit ( for a walk, run, drink) with friends or family. The way gives you beautiful scenarios.

We parked at the top and did the loop down to the bottom via the stairs then up through the woods back to the top. A bit steep in places covered with wet leaves means a bit of caution is needed with the baby on...More

Have you instructed the weather to accord with your itinerary? In my view it is sheer madness to have such a detailed itinerary when the weather can be so changeable. By all means have a wish list, preferably longer than the total number of days would allow, of things you might do on a hot and sunny day and of things that you might do on a wet and not so hot day. If you are lucky you will get more sunny days than wet, if you are unlucky every day will be wet. Also, you just show your...More
