This walk is misrepresented. Those with even mild infirmities should not proceed past the bridge. The track past the bridge is narrow, rocky, uneven, steep and slippery, and the return time of 15 minutes stated on the track-side sign is oh, so wrong. It's way...More

Short easy walk along the track to the Falls - a small but pretty Waterfall. Best time would be to see it after rain for more effect.
