A very pleasant walk alongside the river with valley sides rising up.
|Time: 1hr 20 mins.|
We have travelled up alongside the river and have passed a couple of boards with information as well as passing and ignoring the 'End of walk' sign and finally we encounter the waterfall. We scramble to the top after crossing the river by way of stepping stones. This is as far as one can go on this walk without getting wet. We turn round and return to the car.
