An easy hike along the riverside trail in Minoo Park leads to a picturesque waterfall, plunging 33 m (108 ft) into the river below. Early on along the path, you'll pass temples, shops, and other facilities, before the trail becomes more verdant and less developed. Expect to take about 45 minutes to walk each way, and bring along some water and a snack with you. Look out for the insectarium on site, and the various other paths that lead off to viewpoints around the park. If visiting in fall, you'll see radiant autumnal colors and can try the novel seasonal treat of deep-fried maple leaves.

ハイヒールでも歩けるかもと思われるくらい整備された自然公園です。阪急電鉄箕面駅から滝までの約3㎞は特に安心です。 more »It is a natural park which is well maintained that it seems to be able to walk even in high heels. It is particularly safe to walk to the waterfall from Minoh station on Hankyu Railway.
Lovely nature views, and definitely don't miss trying the Maple leaf tempura. A great day/half day trip when travelling to Osaka if you like nature. Waterfall views are quite pretty as well. Lots of small stalls on the way up selling different things, expect a bit of a walk to get to the waterfall. Not strenuous however
Minoo falls is very beautiful, peaceful, and picturesque. There is a parking lot on the mountain from which you can walk ~10-15 minutes down to the waterfall or you can hike ~2km from the bottom which is a very easy, beautiful hike. Plenty of restrooms along the way and restaurants, food stands, shops. You may see a couple cute cats running around! Don't forget to pick up Minoo beer! Brewed locally! There was a shop at the bottom of one of the hiking trails, but you can find it many places here.
