Took my mother + twins out to swim, but very shady individuals scowling as we parked. The Blue Hole's history was a sacred spot that has been tainted by true "backwoods neighbors" that hate the tourist season. Used my Waze mapping system to find it...More

Nice waterfalls and swimming hole. Beware though of leaving your valuables and car unattended. The local thieves hide and watch for an opportunity to steal.

Short hike (kinda steep) from small parking area to the falls. Truly a beautiful place but in summer months it is very crowded. Best to go early! Unfortunately people like to leave a lot of trash there. A few areas that are safe for small...More

We visited as family group of 15. The trail was not horribly difficult to traverse. The trees were beginning to turn colors for fall. The sites were amazing though. We sat down at the Blue Hole and kicked our shoes off and put them into...More
