“Trail to a large waterfall with option for running along river to three more waterfalls.”— John Maurizi
The initial half mile is a flat well maintained trail to the base of a 60 foot waterfall. Given its ease of access, this is a very popular spot, and can get quite buy, especially on weekends, so plan for other people. After enjoying the falls, return the way you came.
At your own risk, there are several social trails that can be followed to the left just before you arrive at the base of the waterfall. They are not marked until you reach an upper bench where there is a sign warning people not to get too close to the edge of the cliffs. The trail follows the cliff edge overlooking the river. As you ascend you'll come across three more waterfalls and a number of cascades. On a clear day, you can see Fitzroy. The social trails end just before the third waterfall. These are not park trails; if you chose to travel on them you do so at your own risk.
