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.

Great spot. I've been numerous times with my friends. In the summer there's a little cliff people jump off and usually a good amount of people there. It's fun to swim around in the water fall!!
