Access
lower: from Oberdrauburg take the road towards Kotschach and, after about 700 m, turn right and park after about one hundred meters, near a little non asphalted private road (indications "Wasserfall")
upper: come back onto the main road, going towards Kotschach, go beyond several 180 bends and, after 4 km, reach a bus stop (orange sign "Post"). Park the car in a little open space, 50 meters beyond.

Approach: go on from the parking for 100 m more until a left turning bend. On the outside of the bend there is a lightly rising track which in a few mwters leads to a junction. Turn right ang go down until a deforested zone (gas pipe-line), from where it's possible to see the river bed. Go down along the steep grassy slope until the bed, just upstream of an artificiale little concrete dyke.

Coming back: go on along the river bed after the last little jump until an artificial barrage; go beyond it on the right bank and then follow the little road taking back to the lower parking.
