Mt Gozu waterfall
Along the Yamabiko rd there is a side road that leads to the start of one of the many hiking courses that go to the top of Mt Gozu. Just past a large car park which was filled with the cars from local hikers we came across an old ski field building and chair lift which I didn't know existed and is not shown on my touring map of Niigata. And at the trial head we discovered a short side road leading to a large windswept campsite nestled amongst the trees high above the river and saw a sign informing us of a stunning waterfall located in the river below so we ventured down some slippery steeps to investigate. The above photo shows the waterfall we found.
