Waterfall Route

This was our fourth guess where trip and having done previous ones I had high hopes. This trip is best on warmer days. Most stops were closed and therefore we decided to make our own road trip not listed in the envelopes.

Take two days to do the Waterfall route.

The Waterfall route was our first Guess Where trip after hearing about your business from some neighbours. We took the trip on September 30th and opted to stay over night. We had a great adventure and were totally in to the idea of not knowing where we were going until opening the next envelope; although we did know the general direction because we had opted to stay over night so seeking accommodations gave us that clue. It was a great trip, exploring many unique little waterfalls all within a very reasonable day trip from our house. There are options to expand the number of waterfalls you visit and we would suggest that this is a great trip for a two day adventure. We were unable to get a room and any of the suggested accommodations, either because they were booked or it was just a little too pricey but knowing the general direction we were able to book an amazing, reasonably priced bed and breakfast which turned out to be very near our last stop of the trip. We would highly recommend the adventure. Steve and Bea
