Located near the junction at Burma and Alaska Pine Roads. Walk approximately 100 metres up Burma Road to the trailhead of Sweetwater Creek and Blackwater Creek Trails. Blackwater Trail is on your left. Follow the trail to the "Y" and keep right. Stay on the railway grade; it will take you up a hill and to the crest overlooking Blackwater Creek. Follow the trail along the creek, down the gorge and across the bridge at Kelly Falls. Turn left at the top of the crest on the opposite side of the creek. The trail will lead you to David Lam Falls and a picnic site.
