Radcliff Falls is a tall but thin waterfall neighbouring the far more visible and spectacular Adams Falls. Despite being located right below the road, the incredibly rugged and precipitous terrain makes it impossible to get a clear view of the falls, and even the partial views from the top of the falls are not easy to obtain, and involve some dicey scrambling. 

The thick vegetation surrounding the thin falls also makes it impossible to view it from across the lake, so the only vantage point where you may be able to get a good view is from the base. Reaching the base of the falls is very difficult as well, however, requiring a kayak around the lake followed by a very steep and scrubby scramble up the creek past some lower cascades until you reach the waterfall itself. As you can see from the photos on this page, it's not a particularly impressive waterfall anyway so it's unlikely the considerable effort required to view it from below is really worthwhile. It's worth checking out the view from the top though, if nothing else then for the spectacular views over Lake Gordon from the rocky outcrops above the falls.
