Hestavaðsfoss is the first of many waterfalls on the Skógá River above Skógafoss on the Laugavegur trail. After hiking up the several hundred steps to the top of Skógafoss, proceed another 200 meters to Hestavaðsfoss. The steps are the what makes the hike tiring.
A standout amongst the most effectively open cascades on the Big Island, Rainbow Falls is only a brisk five-minute drive from downtown Hilo. On bright days, rainbows show up in the fog of the 80-foot falls, making for some entirely otherworldly perspectives. Rainbow Falls is a standout amongst Hawaiʻi’s most notorious cascades. The falls is […]
25-foot Wintergreen Falls on Grassy Creek starts as a small ledge-type cascade, then moves into a steeper cascading slide into a shallow pool. The stream makes a 90 degree turn over a smaller slide just downstream of the main waterfall. The falls is named for the wintergreen (or teaberry) plants which grow in the area. […]
This fall, like most others, is best viewed after rain. However, this 40 metre drop expands dramatically from a minor trickle to a full fledged waterfall probably 30 metres across. I can’t emphasise enough just how much better it is when in full flow. The steps down can be slippery and tricky when wet. Caution […]
I might be the first to bring you some sad news by the look of it. Raukawa Falls has undergone a dramatic change sometime between your visit in 2010 and my last visit in October 2018. It looks like a big chunk of the front wall, which is made of a hard sedimentary grey clay […]
I was seconded to work in Otorohanga for a month back in October 1996. On most weekends I came home. I did a lot of exploring in the area after work where I managed to visit Marakopa & Bridal Veil Falls. On one weekend while returning hoe I branched off to visit Waitungaru Falls, which […]
I’ve been going to Paradise Falls since the mid 80’s. It’s a great waterfall but you definitely don’t want to swim in the pool. Beyond it being illegal, and the Rangers do write tickets occasionally (especially if you are climbing the rocks), much of the water is gutter water. Just not something you want to […]
Remaining at the viewpoint doesn’t do any justice to Noh Kalikai … There are two treks (albeit fairly short) that according to me are absolutely stunning. One takes you to the edge of the falls, while the other to its bottom. The trek to the edge of the falls takes about 2 hrs. The scenery […]
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.
