It took us about just under 10 minutes, so it is a bit uphill, and the view was rewarding. It is a pretty little walk. Spring time would be a great time to see the falls, as the snow melts.

This hidden gem is worth finding as you go to the larger Porpoise Bay Park, just a few minutes down the road. Quiet, beautiful, short but steep hike is fun and moderately challenging for kids, totally worth the trip.

Wasn't sure what to expect. It's not spectacular, but nice, and easy. The walk through the forest was a better experience than the fall itself.

Short hike (less than 10 min from road) takes you to this lovely little oasis in the middle of the forest. My friend and I felt we were lost in a tropical rain forest. Everything was so vivid and green with thousands of ferns carpeting...More

Easy access from road, with an easy walk to the falls. The creek is rushing after a heavy rain and the waterfall was beautiful. A very short easy 5-8 minute walk, with such lush green ferns, moss on trees. The air almost seems to provide...More

The walk to Burnett Falls is short, but fairly steep. The ravine feels quite wild although it's close to the main road and some industry. The view of the waterfalls at the end was very rewarding.
