Beauty in the way the water has carved the rocks. Kids love to jump into the icy water and swim around the rocks.

Our family has owned property within a mile of this site since 1847. It has gotten more popular over the years. I remember our family having the place all to ourselves when we were kids. One thing I have noticed is that swimmers jumping into...More

This is a wonderful place to explore, hike and find peace. As I’m here during October, the colors are outstanding as well. Parking is fabulous too.

We had a great family trip here. Despite being a beautiful summer weekend day, it was not overcrowded. There were certainly people there, but parking was easy. There is a lot of boulder climbing to be done if you want to get beyond the part...More
