The place is a bit hard to find but well worth it. It is a 39-45 walk to the falls down a trail and up the river. Bring river shoes unless your feet are made of steel. Verdict= highly recommend.

The average person can get to the falls in 45-60 minutes but it will take longer to get back traveling up hill.
