But if you can only visit one, it should be Moul Falls. What makes it so unique is you can walk directly behind the downpouring water.

Unlike other natural wonders where you can only visit a viewing platform, you can be extra adventurous at this falls and see it from all sides. Just be ready to get a bit damp from the mist.

To get here, it is a one-hour walk starting at Clearwater Valley Road. It is a gorgeous trek, especially in the autumn, as you can see all the vibrant foliage.

Walking through the forest, you'll pass Grouse Creek, and then finally will reach the lookout platform above the waterfall.

Just make sure to hold onto your camera tightly when you take a photo, as it is a long way down.

Next, continue down a flight of stairs, and it will take you to the base for another fantastic photo opportunity.

If you want, you can walk into the path carved into the canyon to go directly behind the cold curtain of water.

Once you are ready to head home, turn around and head back the way you came.

As the journey is so short, you could always check out one of the other attractions in the park.
