The path beside the river is well maintained and it was great fun to cross over the river on several bridges. Well worth going up to the top to see the falls.

Fab walk for humans and dogs! Lots of water for the latter to frolic in! Really interesting surroundings and I was thrilled to see a red squirrel! The waterfall itself is v pretty. Fairly challenging walk in parts so not suitable for the less mobile.

Thought we'd walk to this waterfall after Sunday lunch and whilst we were in sturdy sandals the path is a bit bumpy and we slipped here and there. A very pleasant walk, from Bellingham CCC site about a 5 mile round trip.

As previous answers - allow about an hour and a half. It's a steady walk, gently uphill on the way there.
