Horsetail Falls is an easy to get to and very impressive horsetail-shaped waterfall (it is named well). There is a pool for swimming or wading, though it might be a bit on the cold side. But we saw some kids playing around in it while we ate lunch beside the beautiful falls. Do not forget to follow the trail from here up to the top to see Ponytail Falls.
