Hatchet Creek Falls is an amazing place.  There are actually 4 fallen trees that have planted themselves in the swimming hole, but the "hatchet handle" tree sits directly in the fall itself.  The trail leading to the fall is moderate, but fairly short. There is also a trail that leads to the top of the falls.  This fall is popular in the summer.  Fall is a great time for photography. *Do not follow Google Maps to…
