Beautiful Falls on the way to Milford. One of best places in the country We visited in summer months, though it was even spectacular even it. It must be a great view in Spring more »
15 minutes walk to a platform, which isn't so close to the waterfall. One big waterfall and a smaller one to the right. The drive to it is on a unpaved road.
