If you’re willing to get chilly, this natural water slide is a blast! A great refresher between all the hiking in the area.

If you’re spending the day in the forest, this is a worthwhile stop. Parking is relatively easy here as well.

I agree with all of the above answers. There will be no lifeguard on duty. Be warned, the water you are dumped into was literally breath-taking for the majority of visitors when we went in July. Life vest strongly advised if... More

Dogs are allowed in the areas surrounding the sliding rock. I stayed with my daughter's dog while he family did the sliding. I don't think that dogs are allowed in the water though.
