    A beautiful spot to visit, do be aware that unless you are a competent climber the you cannot make this a circular trail, as you will have to climb the waterfall, which I might add is brilliant fun.

    A public footpath heads alongside this rugged and beautiful stretch of water. It is a challenging - yet immensely fun - scramble along this path, however, that is easiest to attempt in drier conditions. After lots of rain, water flows down both sides of the fall making it slippery and awkward, so watch your step - and enjoy!

    Might be a little intimidating for those not used to scrambling but if you take your time and go up the easier left side it's well worth it.

    The waterfall is really not that hard! My daughter did it when she was 8 and she's scared of heights! That said, avoid after heavy rain.
