Route/Trail notes

Follow the path! It goes through a few pools and waterfalls and keep heading up and to the right. Beautiful little pool and nice walk, but don't go into the water!


Do you need any permits? What's the cost?

Other References

How can I find more info? Any guide books?


Tacked this on after Angels Landing, a nice little cool down and was refreshing in the shade with a small dusting of rain
