Grimshaw Falls

Cashiers Sliding Rock –  Originally known as “Grimshaw Falls,” this has become a favorite place to cool down in the summer. A shallow pool allows an adult to stand at the bottom as they await their child to slide down this waterfall.  Sandy shores and a shallow wading pool make it a great spot for young and old alike.
