Only a mile down an easy trail you'll find this little slice of heaven complete with waterfalls, multiple swimming holes and crystal clear water.

Park at the Looking Glass Rock Overlook. After enjoying the view of Looking Glass Rock, gear up and head to the right side of the parking area (right side if your back is to the overlook). On the opposite side of the road you'll see a mile marker and a little trail to the left of the marker. Follow this trail for a mile and you'll arrive at Skinny Dip Falls! You can keep hiking up and around the falls or climb all over the rocks surrounding the swimming holes. It's incredibly easy to get to!

If you want to camp in this area there are multiple unofficial campsites you can make camp at. You will see them off the sides of the trail in plain sight and you can choose which you want, if you so choose to camp!

* Also shortly after you start hiking you'll see a tree that has been said to look like a deer, gazelle, dragon, giraffe and more! It's pretty cool.

Really cool little waterfall

It's definitely not two miles RT (maybe a mile), but it's a cool little hike. The falls are beautiful and pretty unique. I loved the wooden bridge. It was a warm fall day and I wish I had brought my bathing suit to jump in. Next time!

Beautiful even on a rainy day

This was a great short hike! Great view even on a gross rainy day

Nice swimming hole

This is a gorgeous area. It was decently busy when we went even on a week day. Super dog friendly.
