Its so cool to walk under the falls! Very easy path, with a few sets of stairs along the trail.

Awesome stop! Walk behind the waterfall. Easy climb down. Lots of steps although not terrible. Good for any age. There is a handicap accessible overlook though if you can't do approx 4 flights of stairs. Loved this one. Be aware though if it's rained in the past week it's gonna be wetter than normal. You may get slightly damp. It is a waterfall after all.

It is beautiful. Since I live close I have been often. It is easy for kids to walk since it is all on stairs and pavement. There are several places to stop on the Highlands road to check out the gorge (including Braidal Veil Falls). There is also some picnic areas and cliffside lake.
