Quick Hike and a Dip at Hermit Falls

2.6 Miles Total - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally 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.
