Dope cliff jumping spot

You follow the trail until you find this path leading all the way down to the base of the river. It's pretty steep on the way down and not very kid or pet friendly. Cliff is great with a range of heights. Safe enough water depth to send it

It’s best to hike along side the creek.

The view was so awesome and it’s nice just to hang out take snacks and watch people jump off the rocks to the water, it is a little challenging to go back up but really worth it

This use to be an awesome place to swim but douche bag idiots have destroyed it with trash and graffiti. Such a shame.

Awesome summer swimming hole, please be careful people get air lifted every year and some have died in the past. Clean up after yourselves and take a few extra pieces of trash out with you.

Was a good easy hike until you get to the trail that leads down to the falls. the trail down to the falls is very steep. If you take the right side you end up sliding down on your bottom two or three times. If you go to the left you manage yourself over and down rocks.

Overall the water is good. There is a place to jump from a rock into the water below, I was told it is about a 15 foot drop into the water below.

Would recommend for those who have experience climbing, or those who are bored with an easy hike.

Easy hike, followed by a very steep descent down to a waterfall. Fun place to swim & relax. Can be crowded and noisy at times, so not recommended for those looking for solitude.

Really steep incline down into the revine where the falls and swimming hole were. I was not prepared for that! But the PCT was really relaxing and beautiful to travel!

The water was refreshing and it wasn't too crowded when I went (early afternoon) but began to get more populated around 3pm.
