Emerald Falls (Tar Creek Falls), Fillmore, CA

Here is what I can only assume is called “Emerald Falls” just north of Filmore in Southern California. (In Los Padres National Forest) I think it is hands down the most impressive waterfall in all of Southern California yet its not on your list. -Matthias- 8 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please […]

Mooney Falls, Arizona was our Favorite

We hiked to Havasu Canyon last week. The entire trip was full of stunning scenery, but Mooney Falls was our favorite. One has to work a bit harder for Mooney Falls. It is 3-4 miles from the village. The climb to the base of the falls is challenging, but doable for a couple in our […]

Havasu Falls, Arizona No Longer has Divided Flow

I’m not sure whether this is influenced by the water level or the flash flood in 2008. When we visited Havasu Falls last week, there was a single plume of water surging over the crest. As stunning as this waterfall is, we thought Mooney Falls (a mile or so down stream) was even more impressive. […]

Two New Falls replace Navajo Falls in Havasu Canyon

We hiked down into Havasu Canyon last week. You can see the travertine formations where Navajo Falls used to flow. You can also find other travertine formations where older waterfalls once flowed. This is a very dynamic place. A local news report claims there have been 14 significant flash floods in the past century. Each […]

Beedelup Falls

Aside from the attractive waterfall, Beedelup Falls has great boardwalks, a radio broadcast, a suspension bridge and decent walkways. One of the more developed national parks, a bit of money has obviously been spent on jazzing it up a bit. Well and truly worth a visit, just to see what can be done. Also quite […]

Coomera Loop, Coomera Falls

As you may have read elsewhere, to do this loop you need to go to Binna Burra Lodge in Lamington National Park. From here it’s a 1.9km walk to the actual loop itself (16kms). For the first few kilometres there’s some lovely rainforest and then you reach Coomera Falls. From here on for the next […]

Hi, Can anyone help me? I’m looking to identify a waterfall. I have a pic of me but I don’t remember when or where I was when it was taken. If you can help, thanks everyone 1 CommentOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Unforgettable Day! (Hirere Falls)

It was a beautiful sunny day when a friend and I recently walked along the Clinton River, Day2 Milford Sound track NZ, on the way to Mintaro Hut. We had very early on noticed the Hirere Falls jetting out like a fire hose from the mountain. After passing the guided walkers’ stop-off at Hirere Hut, […]

Heart Rock Falls

I absolutely loved the scenery of this whole hike and destination. It was very confusing to get there and we had to make a few U-Turns, but it was definitely worth the frustration of driving there. The hike was a short one, not more than a mile and a half long, and not strenuous in […]

Julia Pfeiffer Burns SP

The Canyon Trail was closed last summer when we visited, but there were still some small waterfalls upstream from McWay Falls that I could get to. 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Kulaniapia Falls

Private, Serene, and Magical. Our pick for the most beautiful waterfall on the Big Island. 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment


I realize we’re talking about movies, but there’s a very beautiful waterfall that is shown every now and then on the tv show LOST. The falls is somewhere in Hawaii (they film the show there). I’m not sure what the name of it is though. Chris 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment […]

Less Than 30 People Have Seen These Falls

Some of the best waterfalls I have seen are in Oregon. But I do like falls in Arkansas. Gloryhole Falls is the best and most unique small waterfall that I have ever seen. Below is a picture of falls in Oregon. We think less than 30 people have ever seen these falls. Our guide discovered […]

Wailua Falls – Saving Other Families from the Heart Ache That her Family Experienced:

My husband and I rented a car and drove to the end of every road we could find on four (4) Hawaiian Islands. We found a wonderful surprise on each path we took! On Kauai, we found the beautiful Wailua Falls. The dangers of actually climbing down the jagged rock face and getting to the […]

Tacoa Falls

Dear Mr Cheng, Thanks for the easy to understand and very well done article on the formation of waterfalls. I teach people how to paint outdoors and waterfalls are my specialty. I take my students to water sites and help them draw and paint directly from nature. When we understand the forces that shape rocks […]

Roaring Billy Waterfall, Haast

Roaring Billy Waterfalls track is a lovely bush walk into this waterfall, but mind the sandflies, they are voracious. It’s worth walking over the stones to the river edge, the view of the waterfall is much better there. 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Hiker 2020 Cascade Falls, California

I visited these falls April 2005 and loved them. It’s almost as good as Yosemite Falls but you have to be in the right place to view them Cascade Falls. I saw the same view as Johnny Cheng. Park at the Inspiration Point (near the tunnel) and carefully walk down the rockface northward to near […]
