Comments/Notes: I first visited this location in March of 2010, and then did a revisit in October of 2014. Back in 2010 the bridge was open and I believe that I seen the 4 waterfalls as indicated in the resources. On this day I traveled from north to south.
In October of 2014, the bridge was out and I did not get to the first waterfall which was north of the bridge as we were traveling up from the south to north.
