Amazing hike to a gorgeous waterfall and "nudist" swimming hole. Very family friendly. No nudist while we were there. Spectacular views. The puppy loved it too.

It’s a very nice short hike, but the lack of parking is not good. It’s is very difficult to leave if you have cars parked near you. There is no place to turn around. It’s a very narrow road people just park along the side...More

Wow! Nice place that is a little hard to find. We stayed in canvas tent at 94 Decker Dr., and walked down the hill and finally found the place. Long walk on dirt road to magical forest that meanders down to the falls. Once at...More

Although this place might be hard to find if you don't know the area,it is a great place to get away and see nature. Beautiful in any season. In winter, most of it turns to ice, and becomes even more beautiful.

This is an easy hike and a great spot to see a wonderful waterfall. Be aware that when it gets warm there may be some hikers who bath without proper swim wear at the bottom of the falls!

If you are looking for a quick hike, with some nice scrambling... this is it. Not for the very young though.

This is well worth the hike...and the climb. Went here during the heat of May...and yet still a large iceberg at the base of the falls. Not a ton of water flowing...but I can imagine that when it rains that it is really beautiful. The...More
