Christine Falls Pull-Off

A local swimming hole featuring this stunning waterfall.

The falls are less than 0.1 mile from the parking area; you'll know you're close as you can hear them from the parking area. You will walk a rocky downhill slope to the falls. This is a popular swim area, but should be used with extreme caution.

Neat Pull-off

It is pretty hard to miss, but there is a small parking area off the side of the road. Some friends and I went cliff-jumping here which was super sketchy since it is a fairly narrow gorge. Also, on one side, there is an underwater shelf, so we always had someone in the water standing where the shelf ended so we knew how far to jump. You can also swim/stand in a narrow section behind the waterfall. All in all, it was a fun little area to spend an hour or so!

Nice little stop

If you didn't know it was there, you'd never know it was there. Small area with understandably small parking, but a great summer spot to grab some pictures and maybe take a dip if you're brave enough.
