Blachly, OR 97412

A parking lot will be located on the right, and a trail down to the rock slides will be across the street. At the entrance to the recreation area, a small waterfall empties into a quaint swimming hole, with a cliff jumping area located directly across the creek. The cliff jumping features dangling ropes and multiple jumping platforms at 25 and 35 feet. The water below is plenty deep, but USE CAUTION. Further down the creek from the waterfall and pool are the natural water slides. They extend roughly 100 feet at a gentle slant and dump into a warm wading pool. The slides can be done with any variety of floaties, on bare bottom, or, if brave, surfed on foot. If body sliding down, expect some road rash. The area is family friendly, but parents should use caution before letting their children play around the water slide.
