Dive into this adventure as you hike through a lush rainforest, swim in a water hole and enjoy several waterfalls! 

You will need a 4WD high clearance vehicle to reach this trail. To reach the trailhead, take Highway 580 which will eventually turn to dirt. You'll cross over a couple of streams and when you reach a Y, take a left. In one more mile, you will reach a second Y which you will turn left. If the gate is closed, you will have to continue on foot.

The road at this point starts to become extremely rough and rocky. Approximately a 1/2 mile past the last Y intersection, you will see a turnout on the left. Listen for running water and you'll know you're in the right place. 

The trail starts at the front of the turnout and travels alongside an old sugar cane canal. The trail can be muddy and slippery, so be sure you have good shoes. 

After you start a rather short descent, you will begin to hear a waterfall as it reveals itself on the trail ahead of you. Two waterfalls formed by two different streams form the perfect swimming hole!  This is a perfect spot to unwind and enjoy a good lunch. 

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
