Cross the Mahai below the casual car park. Follow the path up and across the sign-posted intersection, and so on to the path towards Surprise Ridge. At the turning leading down to the falls is a signpost. Cross above the falls and a track will be found leading down to the foot of the falls. Return the same way.
The map below shows the route from the Cavern, so the description above is the easy option.
