About Waterfall Trail

Known as ‘Day One’ of the massively popular Otter Trail, the Waterfall Trail is definitely a worthwhile excursion at Storms River Mouth.

The linear route runs along the coastline for three kilometres until reaching the graceful waterfall, which marks the halfway point. The starting time for doing this walk is all important – in latest time to start in summer is 14:30 and in winter it is 13:30.

The hike is considered tricky because of the jagged and slippery terrain and it is advisable to tackle it at low tide. Don’t forget to take your swimming gear for a cooling plunge under the waterfall. Look out for the red flash of Knysna turacos in flight.

Grab a map of the various walks and a list of fauna and flora species at the Storms River Mouth Info Centre.

Starts in the Tsitikamma NP, the start is the same as for the Otter trail - in fact, it IS the first part of the Otter trail. Interesting hike along the coastline with a lot of climbing over smaller and bigger rocks. A bit tricky when the rocks are wet from rain.
