Off a 45-minute beaten path in hilly Westmoreland lies a refreshing series of small cascades and pools at Mayfield Falls. Park by the entrance where speaker boxes blast reggae music and residents can be found enjoying the vibe. Small stumps on a steep, earthy walkway act as stairs, and bamboo benches thoughtfully situated on plateaus allow rests during the journey.
The venue of Mayfield Falls has a rustic ambiance complete with spacious lawns, maintained gardens, hammocks, bamboo seats, gazebos and huts throughout the property. Crossing a wooden bridge gives you the first glimpse of the turquoise water, then leads you towards smiling staff.
The next time I visit, I hope to have more friends with me and more available time to spend! It was such a refreshing experience.

The pressure of the rushing water disrobed me quite a few times.
