“A pleasant hike to a waterfall.”— Liz
From the gate, follow the wide dirt road which parallels Zim Zim Creek. Be prepared to get wet feet, as there are numerous creek crossings along the way.
After a couple of miles of hiking, you'll reach an intersection with a large boulder. Take a right to head uphill and at the next intersection take a left to get a view of the 100+ foot tall Zim Zim Falls. On your return trip, if you want to view the falls from below, you take a right at the Boulder to head up the creek. It's a bit "off-trail" here. From below you can enjoy the falls.
Return the way you came, following the road back down to the gate.
