About Crooked Slide
There are several very small cascades at this pleasant park. A path leads from the parking area, around a small bay and up to the top of the falls. But the big draw here is the old log chute which has been beautifully restored. This was originally constructed in the early 1900s to help guide logs downstream on their way to the lumber mill. Lumber companies would construct these chutes to prevent the logs from getting stuck in narrow, winding sections of the creek. You can view the log chute from the parking lot, but the small park is begging to be explored on foot.
