This is primarily a nudist area, so do be prepared to see naked people. The parking area is at the end of Taylor road. This is a popular spot, and even though it was cool and cloudy during our visit, the parking lot was full.

From the parking lot, follow the dirt road a couple feet and then take an immediate left where you see the sign for a cottage.  The left is only about 100 ft after the pavement ends. Walk down a winding and steep road, (which is quite tiring to walk back up), and eventually you’ll hit the stream.

Take a left and go downstream.  Eventually you’ll see a big a rock that says “Nudist Area” ahead. From this point on expect to see a lot of nude people. We were here on a Sunday, and there were probably about 20 people for that mile, and only one couple had clothes. About a mile from that rock you’ll come to the best swimming hole, which is a small 3 foot fall into a large pool with blue-green water. Before this the river is kind of on a flat rock bed, so it widens and narrows to form thin deep ravines and shallow pools, and there are lots of areas to cool off along the way.  There is apparently another fall further along the stream, but we didn’t pursue it. It is about a 25 to 30 minute hike to the large pool.
