    Re: than to run/running across

    Run across doesn't work because it sounds like you're running over the top of the waterfall.

    Rewarding doesn't work in the third sentence because no action word follows it.

    How about What can be more rewarding after a long trek than to arrive at a soothing waterfall?

    Re: than to run/running across

    Did you mean running across the top of a waterfall? Did you mean running through the falling water as part of the route?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thanks, emsr, for the concern. I think Goesstation's version is wonderful:
