There is a small boulder on the creek that offers a few lines which range from V3 to V4. Falling while on the boulder results in getting wet. The water is about waist high, so it's not too bad of a fall. This is best done in the summer or late spring when the weather is warmest. This park is a little off the beaten path, so crowds aren't an issue. The problems start at the base of the rock in the water near a small cave.
From Salem, drive west on highway 22 (aprox. 21 miles) until you reach Mill Creek Rd. where you will turn left. From here it's roughly 2.2 miles until the park itself where parking can be found on the left side. Once parked, you will need to walk towards the big field on the left. There are several openings that go down to the creek. These should be avoided. Walk to the far side in the large field on the left side. Again, the opening to the boulder is down a bit further. You will initially walk out onto the rock and this is when you know you've found it. Walk down to the left of some rather steep rock and you have arrived.
