Off the beaten path, nice - quiet place to swim and relax. A few 12 ft to 15 ft high rocks to jump off if you're willing.

As described in other reviews, nice natural swimming hole, cold water, different depths, easily accessible, on the negative side, it gets crowded on warm days, toooo many dog poop on the ground give way to nasty smell with heat and humidity, rocks are a challenge to small kids to cross.
Best time to visit is mid morning to avoid the crowd and the nuisance by teenagers.

I'm glad we stopped but the parking was crazy, so we didn't stay. The rocks may be a challenge for someone with any mobility issues. Lots of people swimming or hanging out.

This is a Norman Rockwell and National Geographics photograph rolled into one. Outstanding natural beauty used as a swimming hole. The white noise from the falls and rushing water, feels like the whole planet's gone away. Tree roots and rocky paths keep the visitors few. Quite an experience.

Very beautiful and very easy to get to. Just off the road. Great for people who can't walk or hike too far
