  • This place is one of the only falls we visited that we were able to swim at. It's very cold, even here in the beginning of August. There are plenty of rocks to admire and jump off of, although caution must be used. There are signs up advising to use caution. It's right off of the main road. It's a very small hike down to a safe pool below the falls.
