Summary: Grotto Falls is a small waterfall along the West Rim Trail (Fitzroy Falls), which is in a grotto-like setting just off the main trail

Although this small waterfall has a drop of only a few metres, its location is what makes it stand out. The (unnamed) creek drops over a wide, amphitheatre-like ledge, surrounded by moss-covered rocks and gnarled trees.
