Boarded boat with the help of 2 kind gentlemen. Went over the Aqueduct which had a good view from the top. Had to wait for several boats and canoes to cross.

Parked the car at the Aqueduct and walked all the way to the falls which in total was over 4 hours with a few pit stops along the way and back. Really peaceful and enjoyable.
