Montezuma Falls, Montezuma

4.5
Must see · Waterfall · Nature / Park
Take a steep but reasonably speedy 20-minute hike up the river, observing small water features, until you reach the majestic Montezuma Falls, a beautiful 24 m (78 ft) high cascade of water. Cool off in the large pool at the base of the falls, which is great for swimming, but too shallow for rock jumping. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, scramble up the rough path on the left side of the falls to a deeper pool and a second waterfall, where you can jump safely. Wear sturdy boots, as you’ll have to navigate across slippery rocks throughout the hike.
