right at the very end of the footpath) drops down, was closed. So you can take your chance and walk along the shores of the lower lakes to the great waterfall and then circumvent the barrier to climb up the stairs to the left (be careful!). On top of the cliff find the road and turn right.
If you want to make sure to get there (without using blocked paths and slippery stairs), you need to decide early and avoid the footpath below along the lower lakes. Follow the footpath to the north right from the junction of the lower and upper lakes where the Kozjačka Draga restaurant is located and walk up through the woods toward the cliffs and the high road - the footpath will eventually hit the road to Plitvica Selo. You will get awarded with several great views from above (there are some small footpaths from the road to view points above the lower lakes - check out my other location tipp for Plitvice Lakes). Either way, you will want to reach the spot where you can see the great waterfall (Veliki Slap) from above. Follow the road over the small bridge. After the bridge turn right on the small and narrow footpath through the woods. It's easy to find. After a short walk turn right towards the view point from which this photo was taken.
