Anyone hear of an easement? Epic failure by the city to allow homes being built blocking the trail.

Hike up was mostly paved roads. Slide was FANTASTIC, and well worth the trip out there. Don't be freaked out about all the No Trespassing Signage. You can pass though, just stay on the trail and don't actually go on the land and you should not be ticketed. Biggest issue is parking. You can NOT park along the roadway. You'll get a misdemeanor ticket (yes, a misdemeanor). So park only in designated areas well away from the trailhead, or pay for one of the fee parking lots nearby.

The slide was great, but the parking violation was not. You will get a ticket if you park alongside the road. I'm not sure about the reasoning, but it's a misdemeanor.

Beware! They will ticket you if you park on the road. Pay the $5 to park at the house that offers it.

Access to the water slide does involve going through private land (unless you can fly in, take some long, unpaved detour through trees, or something). There was a security guard there who let us go and stay at the slide till 3 pm, afterwards filming was supposed to take place. The guard was friendly and stayed with us at the slide. The northern portion of N Fort Canyon Road is now posted as no parking and it did seem ticketing occurred. There was a home on the east side of the road which allowed parking for $5 (exact change needed though today there was a lady there to give change) for some missionary fund. No overnight parking there.

I've been going to slide rock for years and I've never had a problem with trespassing but last week when I was up there a woman who was filming for a tv show said they were going to start tickiting people for trespassing. Does anyone have the inside scoop as to what is going on? I'm a going to get a ticket if am at slide rock?

Monday, July 07, 2014

It's posted ur trespassing, but we talked to security there and they said if ur goin to sliding rock ur fine. They are just making a movie there right now. We went today and it was a blast!!

Don't go to sliding rock .
It is posted and you are Trespassing.
You will get a ticket if you park anywhere on for Canyon Road.
No public access.
They have construction crews working with 24hr
security guards posted a gate .

This is private property. Any suggestions that you climb through or over the gate marked No Trespassing should be ignored. Spoke with the family owning the property and this is definitely NOT open to the public. Total bummer, but as in almost all things, someone ruined it for the rest of us.

The hike is mostly on a paved road is really easy. Don't let the No Trespassing signs fool you at the gate to the trail-head. Just go under it.
The water was raging but it was still awesome. My 4 year old daughter sat on my lap as we both went down. Great place, not much room for a lot of people so it can be difficult to claim a spot if it's busy.
Also, bring some kind of water shoes. It's much easier to climb the rock face to get to the slide.

The hike is an easy walk uphill to the spring, but the trailhead is a little confusing because you pass through what feels like a residential construction site. The rock slide is really fun, especially in the late summer when it's not as cold. Can be pretty crowded on weekends.

This is an easy and amazing hike! I took four kids and they had a blast sliding down the rocks into the freezing water.
