Description

These falls are not very well known, and have not been accessible to the public for many years. These falls are perfect for swimming (but only the upper section). This is a great spot to bring the kids on a hot summer day, when the more popular spots are all full.

Short Hike: Use the Helton Creek Trail, which is only 0.2 miles long.

Family Friendly: An easy to access waterfall that is perfect for a summer afternoon.

Gem Type: Waterfall
