Car Park at Mahon Falls
Hi pn_runner, I personally wouldn't leave my car parked anywhere along the road leading up to the Mahon Falls or at it's main car park overnight. I've only parked there over the winter when it's cold and snowy (and when you'd probably need winter tyres to get up). I have heard of numerous break-ins there over the years, especially over the summer. It's a bit of a risk in my opinion to leave your car there overnight. Hope this helps.
