          If you visit the Alpine Sliding Rock consider taking a small plastic garbage bag and carrying out more trash than you carry in. The Alpine Sliding Rock is very clean and nice but there is always an inconsiderate person who leaves a mess for others. This is a location, which could remain enchanting for many years with a little help from us all or become trashed in a hurry. Please provide a little extra effort to create an enjoyable place to visit.
