There is debate on what this waterfall is actually called. Lion Slide Falls or Hatchet Creek Falls. I decided to go with Lion Slide because it sounds way cooler than the other. You decide.
Located 40 miles east of Chico, California. Rock creek offers multiple swimming holes with a natural water slide. This spot is perfect for a nice day trip to a relatively secluded swimming hole. If you continue to explore deeper into the creek you'll be rewarded with more spots to swim and cascading falls.
Gods bath is located deep in the Stanislaus National Forest. The closest town is Sonora, California. I hope you do not get car sick, this drive is a very windy one! If you have to pick up snacks or use the restroom, I would recommend stopping somewhere in town before you venture off into the forest.
This pool was carved out of beautiful granite from the years of erosion with cliffs to jump off of to get that adrenaline pump some of us need daily. 15 foot to 25-30 foot cliffs into a deep pool that ranges from 10-20 feet deep. Along the edges of the pool are little "potholes" where you are able to relax and enjoy the view
