There is a lot just down the road from the entrance to the old dirt road where you can park, eat, and enjoy the creek view! (with bathrooms as well).

Great hike! Very rocky but the water was perfect to swim in!

Been going here since I was a child. Trail is marked when it diverges from the dirt road. There is a sign that says swimming. After you see water the trail ends and it's a scramble over slick rock to get to the waterfall. Water is really cold, my family always called it cold springs. Nice swimming hole.

Cute little trail tucked away in the creases of the Ellison Creek Canyon! Deep water, able to jump in from the log (check of course before you jump). Water was very refreshing and hike wasn't bad at all!!! PICK UP YOUR TRASH
