What people say

"After continuing to hike an extra 10 minutes north from Russell Falls along the Horseshoe Falls Track, you'll reach a second cascading waterfall. Horseshoe Falls may not be as big as Russell Falls, but there's a chance you could have it all to yourself--at least for a couple of minutes--as fewer people follow the steep trail through the rainforest. Expect rocky steps, a slippery boardwalk, and moss-covered trees."

"Just a short walk from the Russell Falls and a light walk with some steep steps at the end. The waterfall is horsehoe shaped, hence the name."
