    So beautiful. It''s a short hike, be careful for loose dirt and sand. There''s a rope swing and a few spots to lay down and enjoy the sun.

    This is a beautiful, breathtaking waterfall in a secluded, tropical looking area. It is a short, easy hike to the falls and the trail is dog and kid-friendly. It has a very private feel to it. A fabulous pool is at the base of the falls and is perfect for taking a dip. SO beautiful! The water is super cold but it is probably quite refreshing on a hot summer day. Dogs love it. Just a few precautions: watch out for poison oak! Also, it is easy to miss the trailhead from the road if you're driving--the longest part of the trip was the drive off of 299. Wear good shoes because the trail is rocky with loose sand, so it is easy to fall if you aren't watching your footing and walk too fast.
