Reaching the falls is pretty easy, drive through the Village of Gold River, and head towards Tahsis on the tree to sea road.  After about 10 km, you will see the falls, you can’t miss them. You drive over Cala creek and the falls run down the mountain and come right to the crossing.

If you are here in the rainy season, you will be amazed at the power of these falls as they thunder down the mountain, you will feel it in your feet and the mist will envelope you in a fine layer of mountain mist. The sound of these falls is pretty wild.
