Description

Added by Crystal Sibson

Adrenaline Falls is a favorite swimming hole among the locals.

Adrenaline Falls is a popular spot for the locals to swim and relax during the warm summer months.  The pool at the bottom of the falls is deep and popular for cliff jumping. 

To get to the waterfall, turn onto the North access to Lime Creek road.  A high clearance 4x4 vehicle is recommended to reach the trail head.  From the turn off onto lime creek road, drive approximately 2.2 miles until you see an aspen grove.  Park here then follow the path down to the creek.  The hike to the waterfall is short but very steep.

Reviews

The hike is short but the hike out is steep and can take a lot out of you. The pool at the bottom of the falls is deep and perfect for cliff jumping off the surrounding rocks.
