Never miss this place. What an amazing view before all the waters fall at horseshoe. I have never seen that much water in a pre fall area. This place is wheelchair accessible. Their is also a bathroom nearby.
One of the most amazing places you'll ever see!! Just the shear amount of clear, fresh water going by these little islands every second is mind-blowing and mesmerizing! Very beautiful and easy to get a great view of rushing water and intense rapids. And, to think people have been silly enough to want to ride through this in barrels?!
