Mile 229 - Travertine Falls and Grotto
The clear and refreshing waters of Travertine are always a welcome experience for river runners. After an initial cool-off in the creek and falls, for those who are up for it, a scramble with a little help from ropes and ladders, leads hikers into a magical grotto. Once in the grotto, there is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the marvelous spring water and stand under a waterfall as well, which cascades down from the top of the grotto. Take extra caution on the hike down, as it is easy to make a misstep.
