    Absolutely beautiful waterfall and swimming hole. The hike to get here from parking is so short that it barely qualifies as a walk, mentally. Crowds are a thing, but they are usually manageable. Just take care, there's one portable bathroom at the road, but nothing by the water. Take care to leave the environment pristine if you go here! Carry out all you bring in.

    One of the best swimming holes in the area like everyone says. We made the mistake of parking on the main road. You actually should turn onto Profile Falls Rd, then follow it down a few hundred yards until Hill Rd, then you will get to a nice parking lot, porta potty. The area is clean and free of trash.

    A great swimming hole, water shoes are a good idea. It ranges from shallow wading to well over your head. Life jackets are supplied and a porta-potty is a short walk from the falls. The parkinglot is by the dam rather than where Google Maps takes you (at least at the time when this review was written).

    Nice little area for kids and dogs. Has plenty of parking. Porta potty that was actually very clean. Continue down the dirt road and a great place to see the river .
