Description; Waterfalls are abundant
Best thing about this ride; waterfalls
Advice; Several waterfalls require short walks to get the views. Allow time for multiple stops and photos. Dangerous conditions lurk around waterfalls. Visitors are killed every year. Very slippery rocks. Powerful currents. Deadly drops. These are roadside waterfalls, some which are on busy roads with blind curves and limited pull-outs. Pull out with confidence and vigor.
