Hi! I am born and raised in Kirkjubæjarklaustur,Iceland. I would like to inform you about the mountain roads in Iceland. All mountain roads in Iceland are closed during the period of thaw in soil. Mountain roads are marked with “F” in front of the road number and means Fjallvegur in Icelandic or Mountain road. Most […]
For all of those visitors who have been disappointed by Barron Falls as a trickle, see it roar! After a decent lot of heavy rain, the Falls are in full flight – a sight to behold.
If you take a cable car from Trento (“Funivia Trento-Sardagna”) then you end up in Sardagna, a small town on the top of the hill. Once, I was walking around Sardagna and found a very fast-flowing river running through the town. I soon realized that it must be the source of the waterfall which can […]
Northrop Falls is in the small state natural area called Colditz Cove, between Rugby and Jamestown in the Upper Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee. The hike to the falls and back is less than two miles. You walk through a beautiful forest to the edge of a gorge, then follow the edge to a bridge over […]
The hike to Mosbrae Falls – understand scheduling of trains. The trains heading north, if too heavy, will split into two parts and reattached into one at Grass Lake north of the town of Weed on Hwy. 97 or at Klamath Falls Oregon. That is called a “doubleheader”. They can be five minutes apart or […]
It’s already a long walk to the base of Vettisfossen, but better views can be had by taking the bridge across the main river before you reach the base of the falls and then hiking up a long, steep trail that goes high up above the fall on the other side of the valley to […]
We’ve been regular visitors to Maui for years, and usually do all the same things: We go beach-hopping, watch a luau, shop, take a snorkel cruise, and hang out at the resort. This year, we decided to do something totally different and see the Hana side of the island. We drove down the Road to […]
If you are thinking of taking your own vehicle to the waterfalls – forget it! Even if it is a 4×4 you are no longer allowed access to the campsite – You HAVE transfer all your gear and take the “local” song Teaw” the official reason is “Because policy of Tak Governor ,he wants the […]
Visited the falls last week, Oct. 27, 2017. FANTASTIC. Mountain Bikes are illegal on the Coastal Trail from Palomarin trailhead to the unmarked and unsigned falls trail and beyond. Just spectacular! -Ken Papai
The powerful Stuibenfall can be found in the Tyrol region of Austria near the village of Umhausen. The Horlachbach stream plunges 159 meters into the valley in a cascade of spray which gives the fall its name. We were also lucky to see some beautiful rainbows. There is a car park just outside the village […]
Autumn Ridge Road to Whiskey Falls is washed out. You have to reach it from the Mammoth Pool Road or up Beashore Road.
My son and I drove up from Sacramento for a day hike. The drive was a less than an hour and a half, and all but the last little bit is paved. This was Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, so the cul-de-sac mentioned above was filled with cars. We turned down to Millionaire Camp (not […]
Since I live in the area, I have a bit of additional information. First of all, the road where you park is *a* frontage road (meaning, a road that parallels the freeway), but the actual name is Old Highway 80. It’s called “old” because I-8 was built to replace it. The former Highway 80 lost […]
Thala waterfall at Bharmour is also one of the most beautiful waterfalls
I saw your writeup on Adamsons Falls from a while back, and being quite partial to an adventure myself I decided to go check it out. The track in is still rough, although it didn’t seem too hard to follow for most of it. There had been a lot of rain leading up to the […]
I came out to fish the many small dams and reservoirs around the region and thus left my heavy camera gear at home. I stopped off at Sailors Falls on the way back to Melbourne and was delighted to see them in full flow. I say ‘them’ because there are actually two falls next to […]
Lucifer is possibly my favorite falls. Hiked around falls with my sister (ages 57 and 75). Low-traffic weekday. Beautiful fall day. Down north trail from mill, across bridge and up cliff-face trail (a must – don’t miss catwalk with dedication plaque on way up). A lot of climbing both down and up. Fully-constructed trails, but […]
The moment I had my first glimpse of Havasu Falls, I knew it was somewhere I needed to go. After months of planning, we loaded up our backpacks and made the journey. The trip was worth every single step along the way.
The Nassfeld Waterfall is high in the mountains of the Hohe Tauern National Park in Austria. Although at an alltitude of 2528m above sea level it is easily accessible as it sits beside the Grssglockner High Alpine Road. This spectacular toll road which is one of the highest in Europe is 48km long and has […]
This is located about an hour 1/2 outside of thunder bay in Dorian
