  • Our experience could have been better. You can not bring coolers or picnic with the kids in the swimming area and there are no signs or displayed information on this until you get to the swimming area. On the plus side, there are numerous trails and beautiful nature hikes. The sky lake offers a unique swimming experience as it is a dead volcano at the top of the mountain and scuba diving is allowed.
  • The falls are easily accessible. It takes about 20 minutes from the parking lot to the top of the falls. Just follow the red trail. The steps are remarkably well constructed for a place so deep in the nature. The last 5 min were a bit more challenging but our almost 5-year old was able to master it all with a bit of help.
