    The water has a brownish color (an algae species, according to information from a biology teacher), but is clean and wonderfully refreshing for bathing.

    If you're headed here take a little snack pack and maybe a flask of tea . It's a great spot to have a little picnic and enjoy the surroundings.

    A nice spot to relax at the top of Skeleton Gorge. It’s quite exposed to the sun (don’t expect much shade) but if you go past this dam you get to the second one which has some trees you can sit under. Technically you are not supposed to swim in any of the dams.
