Went there with my 3 kids ( 5-8 of age) - who did find this trail quite challenging - it took us around 2 and half hours to climb up to the fall. It's a non circular trail so the way back is quite boring...More

Nice little hike - very well signposted and the route is well looked after without losing its wilderness feel. It could maybe do with more parking at the trail head, as we went relatively late and still struggled to get a spot.

The falls we're dramatic and beautiful, but the hike there is moderate to intense. It's 60% rocky to 40% smooth dirt, the good part is the way back is almost entirely downhill. It took us an hour and a half to get there moving at...More

Worth the blisters. Got nice and cool as we approached the falls, a welcome change from the muggy weather. Saw plenty of families with kids.

Spring time and the falls were rocking. A must see if you visit Manchester. You'll need good balance and a stick to cross the streams, or mdi-height waterproof boots to walk right through.
