Overall Rating: 
Upon Arrival: 

After Crossing the narrow bridge park in the turnouts on the river side of the road.

The Hike: 

Find trails on the river side of the road, short, steep in parts, hike down to the river bar, swimming holes can be found both up and down stream.

The Beach: 

There are a couple of sandy beach ares and many areas that are gravel/rocks.


There are two primary swimming holes at this spot, one located under the bridge and the other upstream. There are also areas deep enough to swim in between the larger holes. Under the brige there are rocks you can jump off of into deep water. There is both fast and slow current areas, the current can be fun to ride down into the hole under the bridge.
