But it’s great. Take a swim suit, you might want to join in. The water falls several times causing pools suitable for swimming in. Cool in hot weather. The down side is it’s a long drive up and over hills along dirt track, but it’s...More

This is a short hike to a charming and beautiful spot on the Cabot Trail. You walk downhill and across a bridge and then down a steep trail with some staircases to the pools. There were quite a few swimmers, kids and adults. Water was...More

Drive in a dirt road 6.5 km and then walk about 5 minutes to the Falls. The dirt road was a bit bumpy in places but it is a dirt road after all and at the end of the summer season. There are steps leading...More

The road was a bit tough. We were driving for 6 kms before we found the parking lot. We bypassed two people who did the hike by foot. Wow! When I went on the old iron bridge, I saw movement in the water. We went...More

Waterfalls have the nicest view from the lowest viewing platform. Be mindful of wet wooden steps. A great place to go bird-watching. Short hike from parking lot.

A nice easy walk near Broad Cove campground. There was no one around, so we had a relaxing walk to wind down after a full day of hiking. The falls are pretty, but definitely not worth making a dedicated trip to see on their own.

It is about a 7KM drive on a gravel road but a short walk to the Falls. On a hot day it is nice to cool off in the stream and enjoy the surroundings but if your looking to see some great waterfalls you may...More

Nice little walk, only 500m from parking. Don't forget to make your way down the stairs for a bottom view. Not a must see, but nice change for a short visit or rainy day

6.5 km or 4 miles off the Cabot Trail. It's a gravel road, in good condition, but all up hill on the way to the falls.
