The waterfall is a wonderful place to hang out and spend the day! There is a natural slide that looks a little scary at the top but is super easy and fun to go down! Don't miss out by not trying it!

It is an easy 5 min walk from the parking to the waterfall, which is great if you’re looking to spend 1-2 hours. You can swim in the small pool, or even slide down the fall if you’re brave enough.
