This falls is on Forest Road 475B which is just past the Fish Hatchery. The falls is about 35 ft high, but to be very interesting, it needs a good waterflow. The hike is about 100 yds from the parking area. If you continue on...More

These two places are different, but not far from each other. This one (Slick Rock) is free and don't try to slide down it or you will die. You get to it by turning down FR475B which is across the road from the fish hatchery,...More

I think early reviews are correct. Some of these reviews are being confused with sliding rock. We didn’t find the waterfall. The gravel road was more like a off road excursion on my car (though there has been a lot rain). Kids still enjoyed playing...More

Not too long to wait, even with a big line. We all had a great time sliding and splashing into the cold mountain water - it's brisk and refreshing.

A beautiful tranquil place for everyone. The sights and smells of nature. Very refreshing to enjoy the sound of falling water. Must see.

Just be aware that you have to drive 1.1 miles on a narrow, curvy rock road with different size rocks, not all small. The falls are very had to see from the parking lot. It is a short, about 75 yard walk to a better...More

You can see the falls from the parking area so it doesn't require any hiking. This is a good thing because unless there has been a good heavy rain the falls are nothing to write home about. I love waterfalls and when we got there...More
