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

The Alpine Sliding Rock Trailhead is accessible to all
vehicles in all weather conditions.
