“Worth the short walk.”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

A short walk or even shorter drive from Ouary, this is a quick side trip for some amazing views. Don't take the hike to the trip lightly. It may be short but there are some rocky areas that may be difficult for those with bad joints or poor stability. Get yourself used to the altitude before you try the 20 minute hike to the top of the falls. You must be able to walk stairs to get to the bottom of the falls.

The power of the waterfall is mesmerizing! Love the information boards along the way and the tunnel takes this over the top!

“BEAUTIFUL”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

This is a beautiful waterfall. You have to walk through the mountain to see the waterfall coming down from the mountain top to the ground.

“Mother nature at her best!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

The trail to the bottom of the waterfall is quite manageable and well worth the effort. Absolute beauty and amazement when you see this natural wonder. The trip to the top of the hill was very difficult with the trail little more than a wash area in some spots. Would not rcommend this except for the young and fit.

“Really Cool Waterfalls”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

This was a great attraction. What wasn't clear is there is an entry fee--according to the signs accessing the falls from Perimeter Trail, it was $3, but they charge $4. Regardless, it was worth the cost.
