About Sand River Falls, Upper
This is not really a separate waterfall destination; you can reach this falls by continuing upstream from the 'main' Sand River Falls. The upper falls is actually bigger than the falls downstream, but I have observed and heard that far fewer people make the short hike of 7-8 minutes further upstream. The trail is in good shape, though has a few short steep sections. Like the primary site just downstream, flows vary dramatically. My photo was taken in early may, and clearly involves snowmelt. I heard from people that visited a month later that same year and saw a dramatically smaller flow. The flip side then is that you can better explore the rocky exposures along the river.
