The Natural Water Slide In Northern California Most People Don’t Know About

Shasta Lake is an amazing vacation destination here in Northern California, but few people have heard of the natural water slide located just a 20 minute hike from the lake’s shores. Known as Little Backbone Creek, this gorgeous swimming hole should be on everyone’s bucket list.

We definitely recommend sliding down the falls. Look how much fun these gals are having!

Be sure to pack out any trash and leave the place cleaner than you found it. It’s a remarkable natural treasure, and we want to make sure it stays that way for generations to come. Fast forward to about 2:10 to see someone climb up the rope and slide on in.

This video also gives you a good preview of a warm day at Lake Shasta and Little Backbone Creek.

Would you slide down this fun waterfall? How about go for a dip in the clear, sparkling water at the bottom?
