The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extremely exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
Start from Sturluflöt which is the innermost farm in Suðurdalur, east of Kelduá river.
Walk along the banks of Fellsá river on the east side of Villingadalur valley. The waterfall can’t be seen until one is quite far into the valley once there one can walk along Strútsgil creek.
The cylinder with visitors’ log and a stamp is to be found up by Strútsgil creek. One can also cross the river via a bridge on Strútsá river.
You can not get to the waterfall except by going into the creek and crossing the river a few times which can be treacherous.
Strútsfoss waterfall is on the list of nature reserves.
