Description

This trail starts at the dam and follows Slippery Rock Creek upstream. There are many opportunities to view the creek and its rapids. The trail contains numerous geological observation points, including a waterfall at the upper end. Be aware that the trail contains many rocks and exposed roots, so foot placement is a slight concern. The trail is well marked with blue blazes.
