Very short hike to a really cool waterfall/swimming hole. Fairly crowded on weekends but not bad overall. Rocks are real slippery so bring water shoes. Lots of trash around which is a bummer so don’t be a douche. Clean up after yourself Great spot that’s easy and fun for everyone including dogs!

Brought my kids here 6/18/2020 and they enjoyed swimming. There were a lot of mosquitoes, which was surprising. Quite annoyed by all the garbage, next time we go we will bring gloves and a trash bag.

Really is a short walk to the falls. Nice swimming hole, but a bit trashy, people are pretty disrespectful of this lovely spot, trash in the parking lot, and here and there. Other than that, it really is a lovely swimming hole

Great spot, waterfall is a short easy walk from parking lot and is beautiful and you can swim there. There are also trails all around the area good for easy hiking, walking, biking, etc and most are along the river.

Easy to get into the falls. Fun spot to explore. Dog friendly but some might need help navigating through the rocks by the water. During the summer this would be a great picnic/swimming spot. Looking forward to coming back

Perfect short hike to a beautiful waterfall. Had the area to myself today. If you head out here, I definitely suggest wearing traction because it's quite icy.

Trail was short. Going down to the fall was narrow and then large rocks to get to the falls. Many people there because of the swimming. Impressive fall but was hard to get close to if you were not going swimming.

Great tiny hike. It was a nice place to take a quick swim under the falls.

A beautiful recreation area! Its a very short walk to the falls but you will not be disappointed!! The mountain runoff/volume of water was still impressive and pretty swift moving, I suspect during midsummer one could cross being streamed area. very pretty. Worth checking out!

While the walk is quick and easy, there was an insane amount of people there when we went. We didn’t actually get to see the waterfall due to the amount of people. Also, some people were peeing alongside the trail in front of everyone which was another turnoff. We do hope to go back later this fall perhaps when it’s not as busy.
