  • But we look this place up and the unfortunate thing is just the gates were closed and there was nothing to tell us after 20 minute ride that it wasn’t going to be open  more »
  • This place was amazing. Gorgeous water fall and surrounding area. Great place to visit one tip make sure to check and see if the gate will be open. It's a short walk no long hiking involved.  more »
  • The cable trail was not that difficult, but about 1/3 of the way you cannot reach the cable. So it is just rock climbing. Once down, only one other group was down there. Very secluded and pretty waterfall. Too rocky to swim. Rocks everywhere unless you have water shoes. Going back up was a little challenging for my wife (5’2”), but we both made it up no problems. Saw a small snake on the way down.
  • This waterfalls is such a challenge. To view from the bottom, you have to go down to the gorge via a steep ravibe holding the cable. Well the view down there is fabulous and amazing. Then you will climb back.. please be careful. Its difficult climb. There is also a view area near the visitors center for those who dont want to undergo what we did. Heres some pictures to enjoy.
