About this Waterfall

I used to have this listed as Mew Lake Cascade. You can walk on the Track and Tower Trail from the Mew lake campground. Turn left when you reach the Highland Background Trail and walk just a few extra mins. It apparently takes 10-15 mins total from the washrooms at the campground. It can also be accessed from the Highland Backpacking Trail, about 40 min hike south from where the trail starts at Hwy 60, about 1 km west of the campground. This trail is hillier and longer, and winds around... suggesting that it may be more scenic. The photos make it look like a really scenic spot to visit.... am I right?
