A gentle hike to the viewpoint by the lower falls and then a further one and a half mile hike to the upper falls and back. Path was not crowded and the sense of "forest bathing" was lovely. There's also a huge shopping outlet close by where you can get a variety of food and ice creams.
The photos online really don't do this place justice. We were taken aback by just how spectacular the waterfall is. The masonry, small bridges add the overall fairytale feeling. Absolutely worth the short hike to see. The path is well maintained and the signage is easy to follow.
