~This hike CANCELS for rain~

This 4 mile (700 ft elevation gain) hike has the added payoff of naturally formed massive granite slabs "water slides" for us to play on! Check out the YouTube video above, and let's go!

Denny Creek may be the most family-friendly trail in the region. The popular path leads to a series of waterfalls and to a smooth natural waterslide--a massive rock face over which the creek flows, providing a slippery summertime escape from the heat of the lowlands. Just beyond, hikers will find a couple more falls--most notably the beautiful Keekwulee Falls.

This trip is scheduled for FRIDAY to avoid some of the massive summer weekend crowds.

What to Bring:

10 essentials, it is still a hike afterall A hearty lunch/snacks Swimming gear/towels/sunscreen - possibly life jacket if you have small kiddos Camera, etc. (kudos if somone brings a waterproof GoPro!) Your laughing spirit - this is going to be FUN!!! NOTES:

There are campsites nearby, if folks are interested in car-camping. Let me know, I may be on-board with that too. :) Otherwise, we will just plan on driving back afterward.

CAUTION:

As with any hike or water activity, there is an inherent element of risk involved. By signing up, each participant (including adult guardians, if bringing minor children) acknowledge this risk. We are each responsible for our own safety, while also having each other's back's. Hike leaders are not necessarily trained medical personnel, and assume no liability - we are simply joining each other for a friendly, fun hike.
