Allow four to six hours for the moderate to difficult 6 km round trip to Mitchell Falls so that time can be spent at the falls. The walk is over rough country. The track is marked and is reasonably well-worn, but if in doubt walk in close vicinity to the creek. Take care near the many cliffs. Swimming is not permitted below the falls, due to the possible presence of salt water crocodiles. En route you can view Mertens Falls (800 m from the camping area) and Mertens Gorge (2.5 km from the camping area).
