You have to hike in over rough terrain, not for everyone. The water is pleasant and the setting spectacular

We tried the climb up, but it was too slippery and edgy for us. So we found a far better solution! For $4 you can hike in through Sun Trails (up the hill from the base). Decent path over bridges and down to the highest...More
