Locals hit up the slides all summer long on tubes, etc. At one point I know the USFS was all about patrolling and ticketing 'sliders' at Roaring Run, but I believe they have eased up in recent years as I have not heard of any problems in a while. If you happen to be up here during the weekend or during great weather expect to see a lot of hikers. If the stream has just been stocked with trout expect to see a lot of fishermen (& thus the law). Please avoid confrontations with anyone if you go up there and see crowds. Use the existing trails. Take a flyrod and fish. Cookout. Swim. Hike. Remove some of the crucial strainers. Day use area open sunrise to sunset. The slides are fun and run year round so it would be a major loss if they went back to ticketing 'sliders' or even closed it down. So Be smart and Be safe.

Attention Virginia Boaters!

Jason Robertson

During the high waters of Spring 2003, there has been a noticeable increase in reported confrontations between boaters and property owners in Virginia. Please remember to be respectful and courteous to property owners; do not trespass; and avoid confrontation in order to preserve access in the future.
