This waterfall is spesial. Its powerful, seems like its coming out of nowhere. Its close to the parkinglot,so not far to walk to. You can walk under the waterfall, but not getting to wet. Recommende place to stop .

This waterfall is very powerful and nice to go to. You can walk behind it, but you may want a rain gear to stay dry. Very easy to walk up and enjoy.

This waterfull might look small, but in spring when the snow melts is is large and impressive. And you actually can walk in under it :-)
