Walks. A short walk from the car park through the gate near the tea room takes you to the base of the waterfall. Here there is an iron bridge crossing the river which takes you over to the woodland walks and public footpath.

The top of the falls is reached by a public footpath which takes about 20 minutes but is very steep so care is needed especially with younger children.

We explored some of the paths at the top of the waterfall, over a couple of smaller hills before returning.

You can extend and walk to the highest summit in the range here too but navigation skills needed.
