Montezuma Falls
Dec 2021 • Couples
Very long walk but easy, not too much to look at along the way and only a couple of seats. Takes about 90 minutes each way and the falls are over 100 metres high.
Watch out for snakes in warmer weather and take water to drink as the river is polluted from old mine.

10.2km walk.

Good walk. A little longer than posted. 8km posted, just over 10km according to Strava. Time is about correct though.

Track is well kept. A little muddy in parts after a fair amount of rain, a couple of fallen trees but they are working on clearing them.

Great walk
May 2021 • Family
Enjoyed the walk, took my 10 year old son, great walk but definitely wear hiking boots. Gets very boggy my sandshoes were mud covered.
Worth the walk had rained the night before so plenty of flow. Pack camera and some snacks. 3hours return. Suspension bridge closed but still beautiful. Walk along old railway line.

Wonderful walk very flat most of the way a little bit muddy in places truly beautiful lots of different things to see along the way. Shame the suspension bridge is still out of use. Make sure you bring food with you not much open in town on the Sunday we visited the local IGA only.

It’s an easy walk to the Falls, about 13 km return but mostly flat. We really took our time to admire the scenery on the way. The path is very muddy in places as there is water running across it. Hiking boots are recommended but we were ok with slightly wet feet in the end. The falls are impressive, the swing bridge is closed.

Easy as and so worth it
Mar 2021 • Couples
This was a great walk. Very flat and even. Was raining when we went but did not hinder us at all. The waterfall was really humming due to the rain and we could not stand too close. Shame the suspension bridge was shut for repairs as we could have got brilliant photos. Loved it. It’s about 7.2 k walk from the car park and back. Toilets near car park as well. So worth it. Kids and adults would really enjoy it

Walk the track bed.
Mar 2021
We did the walk mid-morning, it took 3 hrs which included the normal photo stops and breaks. It had rained overnight so the river was up and water trickling down the rocks and moss. Info boards along the way with summaries of the North East Dundas Tramway. Awesome to still see numerous original sleepers in-situ with iron spikes, but no rail. There is an existing railway bridge which you walk beside, it is remarkable this bridge is still there, albeit in a bad state. The falls were really nice but to be honest I enjoyed the actual walk just as much - just take your time and enjoy the quiet. The track was a little wet & muddy in parts but no issue if you have the right footwear. Walk was a little longer than advertised. The suspension bridge was closed, noted from earlier reviews it has been out for a while - the only disappointment I can mention. Definitely worth the walk.

Good walk

Pretty waterfall at the end of a short hike in the forest. The entire return walk took us about 3 hours to complete including a short rest by the falls. The way back can be a little tedious.

Suspension Bridge Disappointment
Nov 2020
It took us exactly 3 hours to walk the track have lunch at the falls, and a few stops along the way. We were advised by a sign at the start of the walk that the suspension bridge was closed for safety reasons. Full marks for providing that information, but at the time of our walk (early Dec 2020), that closure had been in place since mid August. That's well over 100 days and still no sign of work being done to re-open it. Disappointing!
However, the falls are still spectacular and the walk pleasant enough, although beware the motorised mountain bikes! Those that enjoy bush-walking will also find the quite wide tramway walk a little bland compared to some other waterfall walks.

So much to see
Oct 2020 • Friends
We followed the old tramway to the falls with many old wooden rails and even and adit and wooden bridge to be seen along the way. The falls are huge but the rocks are slippery so beware. Took over 3 hours with a few stops, suspension bridge was still closed.
