The scenic region of Capitol Reef where these falls are located is a popular recreation area. This area of Capitol Reef is popular with gay men, and nude sunbathing is common here. From the town of Escalante (about 100 miles east of Cedar City), take RT 12 to the northeast to RT 24 to the Capitol Reef Visitors Center. To reach the waterfall and swimming hole from the Capitol Reef Visitor Center take RT 24 east for 6.6 miles to mile marker 86.5. There is a large paved pull-out on the north side of the highway with several information signs. The waterfall is next to the parking area. The river tumbles over a waterfall making a large pool below. CAUTION- DO NOT SWIM HERE IN HIGH FLOW CONDITIONS!
