The falls themselves are a short walk from the roadside along a well-marked path, which is also equipped with railings. The ancient eruptions of Volcano Osorno formed the hard volcanic rocks that make up the many gushing cascades. While the falls themselves are not of significant height many walkways traverse the river, offering an exceptional photo opportunity of the gushing torrents, complete with the ever-present Volcano Osorno in the background.
