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

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
