I absolutely love this place. Absolutely beautiful. One of my favorite hikes and swimming holes. I would recommend this to anyone with an adventurous spirit. Br prepared for a trek, but so worth it. "NO FLIP-FLOPS" Wear old sneakers that you don't mind getting drenched. Bring water (the hike back up without it is ruff). Pack light and in waterproof bags (keys and phones can get swept away if not secure). You are in for an awesome experience. So much fun to be had here. Come early to beat the crowd and watch for slippery loose rocks. Now with that being said. ****DO NOT BRING YOUNG CHILDREN!!!!!**** This place is even dangerous for some ill prepared adults. This is not a place for children under 12 honestly. I am so disturbed by the amount of small children, even babies brought here. I think the park rangers need to refuse access to anyone with a small child. Life jacket or not the terrain is rugged and depending on the flow at time very hard to wade through on the slippery sharp rocks. Children have died here and if you have any common sense you will not put your child in this kind of danger. Please listen to my warnings and.... **** DO NOT BRING YOUR LITTLE ONES! ****
A beautiful hike up a river bed to a spectacular waterfall and swimming hole. It is busy on a warm weekend. If you are not a strong swimmer make sure you grab one of the provided life jackets at the trail head. And even if you don't plan on swimming, know you will get wet, so dress appropriately. We took our kids and they loved it. We were there for 5+ hours playing in the river, looking at rocks, finding geodes and fossils, and watching little fish. We have plans to make this a regular day trip. Take water and a lunch, and something to keep your phone dry in.
