Take a short hike to a 40 ft waterfall and swimming hole.

Rocky Falls are located only a short hike away from the parking lot. The swimming hole is also popular, and the adventurous can climb up to the rock face to reach the top of the falls.

Go after a hard rain

Challenging

This trial is a little challenging. Rough terrain. I take my little fox (baby) on all my adventures. Definitely NOT stroller friendly for any type, even the off road Jeep stroller. I used my Moby wrap for this trail and it worked perfectly. Definitely pack lots of water and hiking boots. Multiple trails around this area. None are marked, but easy to spot!

A Fun Adventure

It's fun to hike and swim there,the water is very clear and you can see a lot of fish
