Gorgeous scenery, photos don't do it justice ! The colours of the river in the canyon are stunning, the waterfall is very pretty and how it disappears into a carved out canyon is spectacular. Best of all the 8 km hike (4km each way) is...More

Everyone should do this hike. This is a great home to take young children or people with some mobility issues as it is quite easy and fairly short but offers unbelievable views of waterfalls and mountains. Note : if you take a rambunctious dog, you...More

This is a fairly long hike, mostly flat for the first 30-45 mins, then the moderate incline starts. however once you get to the top the feeling is wonderful. There is no shade for the first part, so get lots of sunscreen/hat etc.

Lovely walk on a non-technical trail. Longer than we expected - the brochure advertised an "easy walk" across a suspension bridge to the falls when, in fact, it is close to 4 km to the first falls. Although the trail was easy to traverse, some...More

First thing is the war memorials. Very interesting read. After that the journey begins with you having a board walk, suspension bridge and a wooden bridge to begin the hike. With a short hike to the falls. It has som beautiful views all the way...More

Nice fairly easy and safe hike. Not too much elevation. Wide enough trail. Scenic locations. Beautiful falls, water was flowing fairly fast and loud. Great trail for introducing new travellers to the West Country.

Several of us hiked here a couple of weeks ago. We all had a great time and saw some spectacular scenery. I'd like to do this hike again sometime during the summer.
