Rutter Force really is a beautiful spot which not many people know about, however in our opinion it's best for a quick visit after a heavy amount of rainfall. The waterfall can range from a ranging roaring torrent to even a tiny trickle!

Beautiful waterfall. Very peaceful, scenic spot. Not a lot of room to park, we parked on the grass verge before the road to the falls and just walked the rest of the way. – Google Review

So in conclusion, if you happen to be in the area, why not take a visit to Rutter Force. However if you're wanting to take a trip out to visit, it's best to plan it around the weather (if there's been enough rain). We recommend parking in the small park (can only fit in 4 cars at a squeeze!) and then walking over the bridge to view.

  • There is limited parking at this waterfall, so we recommend getting there early to secure your spot.

  • Rutter Force Waterfall is dog friendly.
