The falls are truly a force of nature, their thundering can be heard as you approach the short path that leads to the viewing platform above the rocky banks of the river.

Nearby are various amenities including a restaurant, gift shop, mini-golf, children’s play area and free parking. The surrounding woodland has many trails and walking routes, which offer a perfect opportunity to spot some local wildlife.
