  • While perhaps not unique, this remains a fantastic place to spend the day swimming and refreshingly cool water. You can also climb the nearby rock walls and jump from the cliffs, some of which are qui...  more »
  • This was one of the highlights of our trip. It’s not easy to find, so get very good directions before you set out. A picnic and water shoes are a good idea. There are quite a few stairs and you’re cli...  more »
  • We went on a Sunday afternoon after visiting Rio On and Rio Frio caves - it was pretty busy here and the hike is actually quite steep in some places, but totally worth it. The falls are gorgeous - we ...  more »

  • Very beautiful and powerful 150-ft waterfall that's secluded and many pools to swim in. The road is unpaved and very rough so you'll need a 4WD vehicle to get here. Go past Blancaneaux Lodge and follow signs to the falls (about 15 minutes). There's parking for around 10 cars but we've never seen more than 3. The trail is relatively steep and going down is easy but the return hike up can be challenging for some. Usually not crowded especially in the mornings and late afternoons as most folks have to drive 2+ hours to get here. If you're staying at Blancaneaux Lodge you can bike here with the hotels bikes. It's a wonderful place to visit and spend a few hours. Also many have jumped off the rocks and posted videos so if you're daring go for it.
  • Worth the drive, just DONT go right at the fork in the road
  • It's a bit of a hike to get to the falls but it is absolutely worth the effort.
  • The place is good but nothing too impressive.
