THE FALLS:

What makes this waterfall unique and worthy of its rating is the fun outdoors experience you get while visiting. There is a large, clean, and sandy pool perfect for taking a dip on a hot day. The slow moving water circles around the pool and then escapes into the lazy river below. This is an excellent natural playground for children.
         The waterfall itself is a 35-foot wide horsetail cascading down a smooth rock face before plunging into a 50-foot wide pool below. The pool is calf-to-knee deep and it is possible to squeeze behind the falls. The pool is drained by two lazy rivers that merge back together shortly downstream, where more small pools await you. The trees are spaced wide enough apart that exploration up and downstream is simple and fun. Allot several hours to truly enjoy this park.

Never swim when the water currents seem like they are too high or strong. Use of this website and all of its information is at your own risk! Be safe out there - and always use common sense!
