Slide Falls is one of the few waterfalls that looks exactly how it sounds. Nestled deep within the Slate River Gorge the river pours over a flat, mostly even piece of slate, fanning over the wide rock, making an overlarge water slide. There are a few deep pits near the bottom that the water drops off into to form several direct plunges.
Park on either side of the bridge over Slate River, about 11 miles east of L'Anse on Skanee Road. Follow the river upstream past Slate River Falls and Ecstasy Falls to reach Slide Falls. If you take the east bank path try to come down at Ecstasy Falls and stick to the river a short distance for the best views of Slide Falls.
