From here, you can photograph the falls from the front. The path to the lower platform has around 300 steps straight up from the base of the falls; there are rest areas along the way.

  • Lovely spot with viewing platforms at top and bottom of falls. Path down is made of stone steps so can be slippy. Benches are positioned along the climb for those that need them. Parking for approx...

  • Great waterfall to visit and very accessible from the top with approx 50 steps to the view area - steps are well spaced apart and ground is very stable.

  • A definite visit if in the area! Erskine Falls has two viewing platforms (a high and low), a river trail and open to get up close to the falls. The lower viewing platform is via a 220m steep decent, so be prepared for the walk back up. The upper viewing platform is an easy 80m flatish walk. 🚗 Small car park and there is no parking restrictions on the road shoulder on the way in. Local guide tips: -Come in the afternoon to avoid crowds and easier to get a park. -Wear water shoes if you have them.
  • My faves of the waterfalls/river walks in the area... beautiful and the river walk looks amazing! We only the first 10 mins... the full walk is a grade 4, 3 hour one way hike, so decided we'd come back for it, but if you love to explore, this is one for you... it's not an easy track, but has multiple river crossings and a fun track with rocks and tree roots to clamber over. Pack good hiking shoes and water if doing the walk!
