    Yeah, it's worthwhile especially if your timing enables you to photo a Pingxi train going across the Keelung River. The modest Shifen Waterfall itself is some 2km from Shifen station of the TRA Pingxi Line. We took a taxi which shortened our walk to 500m.

    Waterfall
    A chance to see the natural beauty and to walk across a metal slightly swaying bridge. It is not a large waterfall, and requires a level of mobility as there are several flights of steps to be surmounted. You can walk to Shifen Old Town from here, but most tour groups would go via the buses. There are a couple of shops here selling souvenirs and local snacks. We managed to buy some persimmons, which had just come into season.

    Good for couples/friends, less so for elderly and toddlers
    Went with a family of 3 toddlers and 2 elderly. The path from the car park (we hired private driver) to the waterfall was about 20 minutes walk, was told by the carpark warden that we could bring a pram, but turned out that there were quite a number of flight of steps, and uneven ground as we got nearer to the waterfall area. Steps were probably too many for my 70+ old father to ascend/descend too, struggled quite a bit. The waterfall itself is grand and quite impressive, would be able to appreciate even more if it was less crowded. Everyone was crowding at the same area to take group photos

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Down the old street, you get to the main road after a few hundred metres. Then it is about 500m down the hill to the visitor information centre. Here the walking path commences. It is not one for the disabled. It is mostly concrete, but has stairs at times and a couple of bridges to cross. About 700 metres of walking takes you to a food and souvenir precinct and then there is the observation areas. The falls are impressive, but it very much depend on the level of recent rain what you get to see.

It was drizzling and windy when we walked around the area. There were lots of tourists even on a weekday. It was an interesting walk over a suspension bridge and looking at the waterfall.

A beautiful waterfall especially when the sun is shining because then you also see a rainbow.
You can see the waterfall from different levels.

The walk area to the Shifen waterfall is very well kept and clean. There are little shops and eating areas that surround your trek to the falls. And the falls are beautiful. Make sure you keep going, there is a labyrinth of many paths.

We went on a wet rainy day. The walk way is long but there are shops for souveniers and foods in between. There are even temples and statues of animals. One can also see the pinxi railway

The falls were small but the walk to and over the suspension bridge was pleasant.

Add it to the lanterns and golden waterfall as part of a general tour.
