Roads have changed since these maps were made so your topo reading skills will have to be good… but even if you can drive close… just walk on in from where ever you can park.  Actually while I was walking out I found a 4WD road that came almost down to the falls.  this is a place that I will return to time and again, it’s beautiful.
