This a beautiful waterfall and is right along the road side. Parking space is limited and you have to walk down to the platform to view the falls.

These falls surprised me. They were the largest we had seen here. There are steps going down to a platform to view them. The water was up when we were there so that may have made a difference.

Really a beautifall waterfall. To access the viewing deck you must be very careful. To go further is a potential falling hazard. Young or very fit persons are more suited to this in my opinion.
