Parts of the trail involve uneven ground, water crossings and scrambling over rocks. It has a Class 5 rating and requires a high level of fitness. Allow 4-6 hours for the 8.6km journey or 2.5 hours each way. Some visitors walk one way to or from the falls and take a helicopter flight in the other direction.
Little Mertens Falls walk trail
This easy to moderate trail leads to Little Mertens Falls where there are stunning views and the opportunity for a swim. Allow 30 minutes return for the 1.6km, Class 3 walk.
River View walk trail
