This is not just a casual walk through the forest as there is a lot of climbing, jumping and balancing along huge rocks. It is challenging at some points but absolutely worth it. I feel accomplished. The views are only fully appreciated in person. The...More

What an amazing experience! We visited stormsriver mouth on the 25th of November. We decided beforehand we will do the waterfall trail. It was totally worth it. It is a challenging walk, as one needs to climb over rocks and a few steep stairs, but...More
