Excellent swim hole. Well maintained trail. Great place to spend a day. A little disappointed in the amount of trash people were leaving behind but all in all great place. Already planning another day to hike in and swim at the swimming hole.

Great swimming hole. Trail is easy to moderate with a great swimming hole at the end. Great place to spend a day. Hiking in to swim for the day. I was disappointed in the trash but that is just irresponsible people. Falls are beautiful. Pathway is well maintained.

Great hike, even better site once you are at the falls. Didn't go to the over-look, but will on next trip. Bring 'wet' shoes and bathing suit. Bring water to drink as you will definitely need it.

this was an incredible hike, deceptive tho! nothing at the trail head warns you! you need to wear appropriate footwear! you will be walking in the water! and it is hot! the rocks put off some serious radiant heat. it blew my mind how many people were going down there with flip flops on! bringing no water just wearing a swim suit and a towel. it was really crowded with people the day we went, and it was a Tuesday, i can't imagine what a weekend would be like. The falls were gorgeous! well worth the hike up the creek!
