This is an interesting feature to inspect as you follow the trail towards the more impressive ‘Fourth Falls’. This unnamed creek has created what appears to be a long, natural waterslide. The creek is probably only 5 cm deep for much of the year.

As it descends over a long slope, it has worn away the thin soils and vegetation, but has not been powerful enough to erode a gorge into the rock.

The creek descends at about a 30 degree slope for what may be several hundred metres long. I suspect that this dries up in summer, and would appreciate hearing from anyone that visits during that period.

If it weren’t for the fallen trees and underbrush, one could almost imagine sliding down the whole thing in an inner tube. The photo also shows the trail from the parking area; visitors would need to cross this shallow creek to get to Fourth Falls.
