Frog Rock Waterfall

Frog Rock Waterfall (中文版: 青蛙石瀑布) is a fantastic waterfall located down a well made 500 meter path off of Route 60 (竹60) in Hsinchu County, Jianshi Township (新竹縣尖石降). It looks like one of the best places to swim in the area, however, there is a sign that says swimmers will be fined, so swim at your own risk. There is only one sign at the top of though, so it's not unclear where they are talking about. If the sign is because of the water pipes intake, then the large pool down by camping area will be exempt. If it's because they are worried people will get swept over the waterfall, then presumably everything under the waterfall is exempt (wishful thinking).

You'll know you're at Frog Rock when you see all these snazzy Frog Statues.
