This is a gorgeous swimming hole, with possibly two routes down to it.  There is a small 8 ft waterfall right by parking area, but the true gem is a downstream. Hike either north or south side of river about 5 min, with trails on the end of each guardrail on the opposite side of road from parking lot. First you’ll see massive fall with a giant rock in the middle that is the start of flume, you’ll want to go down to the second falls, from there you can swim up the flume about 7-800 feet up to first waterfall but it will be tiring and against the current. Lots of pot holes to sit in. people were swimming here. Then below second falls river opens up into large swimming hole, large rocks, people swimming. Many places to jump into the water and lots of places to explore.  Easy hike with some steep areas. Also another parking area on the right just a little further down the road.

There are reports that people have died here, do not swim if the river is high.
