Reviews

Drive is a trek down a rough gravel road but so worth it. You can hear the water as soon as you step out of the car. Seeing the fall from the top of the trail is captivating but nothing compared to looking up at it from the swimming hole. The water is clear and refreshing. There are a couple of rope swings to the left of the fall. Totally worth the trip.

Awesome
