Quick Hike and a Dip at Hermit Falls

Details

Distance

2.6 miles

Route Type

Out-and-Back

Added by Derek Mathewson

Head out on this 2.6 mile out-and-back hike. Take in the 35-foot tumbling waterfall. Bring your dog with you. Duration: A few hours.

From Roberts Camp, many hikers will head to Sturtevant Falls, which is an amazing 60-foot waterfall. But, if you choose to head in the opposite direction on First Water Trail, you’ll be rewarded with a fresh water swimming hole at Hermit Falls.

At the swimming hole, you can slide down the rock cascades or watch people cliff jumping from the top of hermit falls. If you choose to do this it’s at your own risk, be very careful. If you want to have a more relaxing day, take in the falls and cool off in the pool before heading back to your car.

so dope

felt like I was in a movie

Awesome Hike!

Very fun hike. It was difficult to find parking in the lot and we had to park down the hill a little but it's not hard walking up to the trail. You take a right past the restrooms and start walking down a cement road. The start of the trail to hermit falls was kind of hard to find because it's a little dirt trail off to the right around one of the bends. One thing to be careful of is along the trail there are quite a few areas where you have to walk through plants with bees around them. Other then that the trail was very beautiful and mostly shaded. There were plenty of places to take pictures of the creek/river and once we got to the end of the hike, there were rock water slides which were incredible. Definitely going to go back in the summer to swim. Only downfall is it gets a little crowded at the end but it's not bad!(:

Sweet day

so sick

Beautiful scenery. Pretty decent for a beginner. Opportunity to do cliff diving. Good place to take pictures
