Water Safety

Be aware of your surroundings, and follow these guidelines to have a safe and enjoyable spring visit:

  • Beware of slick and slippery rocks.  Any amount of moisture and rocks become slippery and provide unstable footing.
  • If there is a rail, fence, or warning sign - heed it and don't try to go around or slip behind.  The safety precautions are appropriately placed, most likely because of other unfortunate incidents at that location.
  • Water fluctuates rapidly.  If there was a safe stream crossing earlier in the day, it may not be so on the return trip.  Be certain to assess if there are any changes and don't assume the conditions are the same.
  • View our How Deep is the Water YouTube video - and please be safe.
