Details of the hike
Easy terrain throughout your expedition. Great dirt road trekking until we reach to the popular "Marianne River".
Combination of trail and the occasional river trekking downstream for the next 20 minutes until we reach to a diversion that will ultimate lead us to the waterfall.
A short uphill trek for 3 minutes until we immediately head downhill onto the "Grand Fond River" where lies the majestic waterfall.
Great bathing here with a small area that is deep. One can walk around the perimeter of the pool which is shallow throughout in order to reach to the actual waterfall.
To reach to the back of the waterfall, the wearing of your shoe is important as the river flooring is very rocky throughout.
