Indulge in nature’s very own waterslide — a place where rushing water and a smooth slab of river rock come together in perfect harmony.
Sliding Rock is a 60 foot natural rock slide with a 6-7 foot deep pool at the base — perfect for folks looking for a fun waterfall to slide down! The slide is a Forest Service recreation area with lifeguards and staff on duty from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. With a low fee of $2 per person, it’s affordable and will foster memories that last a lifetime! The warm weather does bring the crowds, but you’ll have fun waiting your turn as you watch each slider’s expression as they slide down!
Located along US 276, about 7.5 miles south of the Blue Ridge Parkway (or a little over 7 miles north off US 280 in Brevard). Parking is somewhat limited, so if you can, try and arrive early in the day. For more info, call the US Forest Service at 828-877-3350.
