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.

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!!
