Hidden waterfalls

Super pretty location however make sure you get there early. In the afternoon it gets super busy with a lot a lot a lot people!!

You Can Also Hike Here

There’s a path from the park too if you go across the bridge and turn left, the trail takes you to the waterfall. There’s many spots to just chill or sit at the top and hang out. There’s a spot to cliff jump from as well, but when the water level is lower in colder seasons, it’s not deep enough to jump.

Good Paddle, Decent Swimming

Did this paddle with family including several children. The paddle is a good distance but not too difficult. Can swim and play at the waterfall. Rocks are very slippery and saw a couple of snakes in the water. Just be vigilant.
