Pahn Sile

Location: Madolenihmw
Difficulty: Easy-Moderate
Length: 1 hour round trip, not including swimming
Cost: $50 total (1-11 people), $75 total (12-20 people)
Watch out for: Slick footing during and next to river crossings, rocks under the waterfall

Description: This is a nice, short hike to a beautiful waterfall. The trail is relatively simple, and only earns the moderate addition for one small stream crossing over a log, and a couple river crossings. Your feet will get wet, so choose shoes accordingly.

There is a large pool for swimming, and the chance to scramble a bit on the rocks to the right. There are sizable rocks under the fall, though, so use caution if jumping in.

Directions: You can arrange for a guide by calling Joseph Rosario (work: Parks and Tourism Office, home 320-6434). He will meet you across from the new Mormon church in Madolenihmw and drive the rest with you. You will turn to the right and follow a dirt road until the end before starting the hike. If possible, I suggest parking earlier on the road and walking a bit - the road can be very rough in patches, and a longer hike may be desirable.
