This hike is especially perfect on a hot day. A beautiful waterfall and swimming hole at the end, makes it a fun way to spend a day! Not a hard hike, but a little longer than others(about 2miles). The trail does require travelers to cross the creek 3 different times . Make sure to wear shoes that are able to get wet! Allow at least 4hrs for this hike!

This hike is nicknamed "Little Switzerland" because the view is truly incredible. It is well worth the 40min drive to hike it! However, the road up is not the best and must be taken slow! Moderate hiking level.
