From the parking it is a 10 minute walk to the base of Cascata del Fontanon di Goriuda. The walk isn’t difficult and the views are awesome. Arrived at the base of Cascata del Fontanon di Goriuda you see a big cave where the waterfall drops down. You can walk behind the waterfall when taking the path to the cave.
