Short walk downhill to a swimming hole fed by a beautiful, lush waterfall. There is also a rope swing that the kids (and maybe some of the adults) couldn't get enough of.  Little caves beneath the waterfall were also interesting.  The waterfall is spring-fed, so the water is always cold, no matter how hot it is outside.  The kids also enjoyed playing inside (yes, inside) the trunks of the towering bald cypresses by the ridge above the waterfall.  And for non-hikers, there's even a swimming pool up above that is fed by the same spring water and has a nice overlook onto the swimming hole.
