These guides love to cliff dive, and are happy to lead you up the face of the waterfall, if you feel the urge. No safety lines, or security measures, so it's a very personal decision for anyway interested in big thrills. The walk in is at least an hour, mostly uphill, and very scenic. This a fantastic option for hikers who like to combine activity with a work out.
