About Decew Falls Lower
Unlike its far better known neighbour, the lower falls at Decew is hidden in thick woods and was traditionally much less busy. This is partly because it's smaller and less refined, but also because it is challenging to visit up close. In 2021, access to the gorge level was closed by signage... hopefully this is temporary, as this is a top notch waterfall adventure. <BR><BR>During Covid 2020-2021, extremely excessive crowding occurred at the site. Numerous rope-rescues had to be undertaken, to retrieve inexperienced hikers likely visiting this waterfall for the first time. Hopefully, post-covid, the restrictions will be relaxed.
