  • It is a moderate rocky hike to the waterfalls. It is slippery in some place. This a popular place for swimming location, lots of young people.

  • A storm washed away the bridge a month or so back so you couldn’t get down to the water. About a half mile down there, not a rugged hike. The trail has rocks and tree roots so be careful if it’s wet.

  • What a cool area and beautiful hike. My kids (9 & 6) had no trouble with the 1.5 mile round trip hike. We stayed for quite awhile to wade and swim in the cool cascades and various pools where the stream collected. Lots of great rocks to climb on and explore. The hike itself is fairly easy to moderate. Climbing around the steps and rocks at the waterfall itself was a bit more strenuous but our kids did fine. Would definitely recommend this area. There were several others but the area was large enough that it never felt like it was too crowded. I would highly recommend water shoes if you plan to climb around in the water.
  • Skinny dip falls is a easy to moderate hike with not much distance or elevation gain. It is a beautiful stop that feels so secluded in the wilderness if it wasn't for so many people being out there. It is a nice swimming hole but it is very cold so be prepared for that. There is also a nice jumping rock towards the top to jump in.
