Recreation

A lot of recreational activities happen at and near Eagle Falls, usually in the summer. Shortly after the falls, the river flows into a huge, deep, green pool. People often swim here on a hot day. The fact that cliffs up to 60 feet high rise above the pool and a rope swing is also there only makes the area more popular.

This waterfall is also occasionally run by expert kayakers. It is considered a class 5+ rapid and should only be attempted by extremely experienced paddlers. It has been the site of a fatal attempt.
