My third trip to this canyon. Instead of doing the entire 8-mile route, we just wanted to visit the swimming holes and waterfall at the south end on a hot day. We parked at the south trailhead and headed north to the falls. The water level was much lower than my previous visits to this creek, but still adequate, clear, and flowing well. The water was 2-4 feet deep in the first couple pools we passed, and over 6 feet deep in the pool below the falls. The falls were very weak - more than a trickle, but much less powerful than previous visits. The water was pretty warm. We played in the pool below the falls for a while, then climbed up the falls and went upstream a little bit, then climbed back down and headed home. Only saw 5 naked guys this time. Picked up some trash along the creek near the trailhead.
