Tucked away within the scenic San Isabel National Forest lies one of Colorado’s “coolest” hidden gems: an all-natural water slide! Situated upon smooth boulders, this natural water slide is fed by the clear waters of the St. Charles Creek, which quickly cascade down the rocks before plummeting into a cool pond below. Let’s take a look:

So fun, right?! In addition to this unique opportunity, San Isabel also offers glorious hikes, which you will also experience as the slide is only accessible by foot. (Hey; we never said that getting to ride the slide didn’t come without a little work!) The St. Charles Creek waterslide can be hard to find, but fortunately, the Greenhorn Valley View offers detailed directions via their website.
