A beautiful way to spend a day, hiking up the Canyon of Waterfalls. A bit of a tough start but well worth the effort once you get into the Canyon. It is so relaxing and beautiful. Plenty of places to stop and relax and take...More

Beautiful, but too long to finish, about 13km on foot and takes some time. Couldn't finish it without some training.

Very nice scenery with beautiful river but difficult to walk especially with young children. We weren't able to finish the route and we were there more than an hour.

Calm and very beautiful place to be. The route is well marked. You need 4 hours in normal speed walking to go to the highest waterfall "Orpheus". You don't need to go back to the same path, because at the Orpheus there is another marked...More

This is my favorite trail, Canyon Falls! Phenomenal, beautiful and interesting place. You must be willing to walk at least 2-3 hours and a stop shooting time is doubled. I visited this wonderful place in early fall and made great shots. Required place for anyone...More

A lovely trip. Everyone can go and you can spend as much time as you like there though in total the round trip is about 3-4 hours. There are great picture opportunities and the actual hike isn't too tiring.

It was a wonderful hike along the falls. The full trail is a loop but only one half is along the waterfalls, the other half is mostly hiking in the forest with a couple of view points. If you want to really enjoy the falls...More
