Here the climbers make their way down to the waterfall in the same way and there they kiss with the dust of the driving water. A breeze spray is a welcome treatment during a hard climb during the hot months. Every fifty steps or more, there is a convenient ledge or deck that jumps out of the water and allows climbers to pass faster, or families can take pictures of beautiful scenery. The stairs end at the end of the waterfalls where there is a bridge that allows climbers to walk across the creek. This is a good resting place where you can take the best photos while looking at the fall before you. As you cross the bridge, continue for a few more feet to the top of the waterfall.

Look at the rails and watch the water flow at your feet. Also at the top, there is a picnic area with a large field of green grass where you can throw blankets and enjoy a decent lunch.
