Don't let the name fool you: Skinny Dip Falls is not the place to skinny dip. It is, however, an amazing swimming hole, and a great place to spend an afternoon. This series of small falls and cascades provides three great swimming spots, a few rocks to jump from, and a great fly-fishing hole.
Skinny Dip Falls is a short, easy-to-moderate hike through beautiful trees and the occasional wildflower patch. The trail is rooted in sections, but it is well maintained with timbers, footbridges, and a staircase. This trail is very well known and extremely popular during the summer, so get there early or go during the middle of the week rather than the weekends.
If the falls become too crowded for your liking, follow the creek up for a fun rock hop with a few more small falls and cascades. The hike is a simple out-and-back, so when it's time to head home, simply head back the way you came.
Swimming holes and cliff jumping can be extremely dangerous and unpredictable outdoor activities that pose significant risks regarding personal safety. Changing water levels, unseen rocks, and river bottoms that have shifted with currents and seasonal weather can turn a well-known jumping area into a serious hazard. Prior to engaging in these activities, extensively scout the current conditions, and understand the risks involved with serious injury and the logistical challenges of evacuation from the water so you can make safe decisions.
