It is a good work out I must admit and definitely not for the faint hearted. I'm glad that you stopped to view the waterfalls this time. Thank you for the review.

I'm so pleased that you weren't put off the walk because of all the steps. If people can take their time and go at their own pace then it should be ok. Obviously if you suffer from bad hip or knee joints then it is...More

You will need to be quite fit to do this walk as it is quite steep and wet. The view is well worth the climb down and back up right next to the falls. You don't have to do all the walk as you can...More
