Careful of the "drop off ". Great place to relax and enjoy some warm water. Current can be a bit much for a smaller child though so be careful, it doesn't look as bad as it shows. But either did the drop off which claimed my camera and a story my kids will never forget. Not a hiking trail though, more of a place to relax and enjoy the surroundings. No place else I can compare it to.

A fun place to swim. Usually very busy so finding a parking spot can be difficult
