Swimming Hole

This is an amazing waterfall that is super easy to get to and doubles as a great swimming hole.

This is definitely a hidden gem located in the middle of nowhere. This waterfall is literally on the side of the road, which makes for a great place to stop and have lunch. During the summer it doubles as a swimming hole and great place to chill.

Getting there: Take Hwy. 16 east from Pelsor (located on Hwy. 7 between Jasper and Dover), past Pedestal Rocks Scenic Area, to Ben Hur. Continue past Ben Hur on Hwy. 16 for a mile and then turn left onto FR#1205/CR#68. Continue on this road for 2.3 miles and the waterfall will be on your right.
