Took just a short trip down the road to the first falls. Saw a couple young guys jumping off into the water. Pretty chilly since it was March 3rd. Very nice drive. Will be better in a couple weeks when the dogwoods start to blossom.

Pretty place and I'm sure it's even better in the summer when you can take a dip in the pool.

very beautiful drive, lots of falls that can be seen from the road, or just a short hike off the road. gorgeous area, will definitely go back, if your in a car I would suggest stopping and going back once you hit the campground, drove way down that rock/dirt road and had to turn around because there was literally a river to drive through!

An absolutely beautiful waterfall that anyone can see! It's one of our favorite Summer swimming holes and always worth the 3 hour drive we make to visit a few times a year. We recently made a Winter visit and it was just as gorgeous!
