Officially this trail has been closed by Table Mountain National Park, but with some care it remains an exciting assent up the mountain, first to the lip of a 20 m waterfall and then up the river bed itself, above the falls (dry in summer). At the point where the gorge narrows and appears to reach a dead end, take a path up a series of ledges to the left. After that,  a short walk takes you to the main Echo Valley path.It is best to do this hike in summer as the winter rains would make the rocks extremely slippery and potentially dangerous. 

This is a long hike, so take plenty of water.
