An obscure cascading falls, Secret Place, as it is unofficially known, is reached by taking a detour from the popular Castra Circuit. 

Coming from either Silver or Castra Falls, you will come to a small footbridge over Nietta Creek around the midpoint of the hike, a short ways upstream of where the Castra and Nietta Creeks merge into one. Easy-to-miss signage points the way onto a rough trail from near this footbridge, which leads downstream, often taking you steeply above the creek, before coming out at the pretty falls after a walk of 20-30 minutes. The side trail is rough and not always easy to follow, and if you are short on time it's probably best to give it a miss, but if time allows it's a worthwhile side trip. 

Times and distances shown on this page reflect doing the entire Castra Circuit, including the Secret Place detour.
