What a beautiful waterfall!! It's a shame the cave caved in, it used to be fun to go play in there. However, it's still an excellent place to flyfish, skip stones, and enjoy the beautiful view in a place that isn't super popular. There's a trail there that leads to two or three more amazing waterfalls in just a couple miles. Watch out for mosquitoes!
