Montezuma Falls, Montezuma

4.5
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.

  • Strenuous, short way. Beautiful, rather small waterfalls with swimming opportunities. Absolutely something to drink, good footwear and swimming gear with you!

  • This waterfall is pretty cool, even though it's not the biggest one I've ever seen. She has three falls... The last one is the biggest. The second one has a small water fall but it's fun to jump in the water on top of it. There were people with family and couples too. The water was dark because we came in the winter, but they say that in summer it is clearer. The trail until they are quiet, but the lap is a climb that for some can be pulled.
