This is a great place to hike for people who need a fairly short, easy hike. It's about a half mile -- there's another path at the end so people who want more can continue. In the first half mile there are stunning views of Oak Creek Canyon disappearing into the distance and the creek below cutting its way through... More

The views are great and there are plenty of facilities, but scrambling on the rocks is for younger folks. There are some farming artifacts to see and plenty of people. Do it on a week day if possible. There's a DQ on the way if you need food.

We stopped and walked into Slide Rock State Park per a recommendation. It was pretty, and some families were enjoying the rock slides and swimming which had just reopened after the closure due to slide fire. However, it seemed that there were prettier places to hike too without the masses of people.

Well worth a visit, but be careful on the rocks. They are extremely slippery. Great photo ops and fun if you are careful in the water.

Go early in the season- when my family went a few years ago, we heard about the warning about bacteria in the water. We were there early in the season so the warning was not in effect- but locals shared this can be prevalent in the peak tourist season.

It was a bit too cold to go into the water however, the hike to the water was beautiful. The surrounding area is nice. It costs $10 to get into but you can stay there all day if you wish. They have picnic areas and some Orchard history to see. Worth the time and money

Went camping with friends who brought us to Slide Rock to have lunch and sightsee. The views were absolutely beautiful! The water rushing down the rocks was awesome. We couldn't wait to slide down the smooth rocks. But be careful the rocks are super slippery. The water was ICE cold when we went in late May. Such a beautiful area... More

There is a small water fall/flow surrounded by nice beautiful rocks of different shades and will find little relaxation and fun. Good feeling.

I stopped here for lunch on the way into Sedona, as it's only a short drive from the park. The surroundings are great, especially once you get a little deeper into the park, away from the road. The water is very refreshing in summer time, but I suggest if you go, try planing a visit just before the mid summer... More

Today we took a picnic to the Slide Rock park , and what an experience! If you have never been to this park you will be missing so much . It truly is one of the most amazing park I've ever been to. Weather permitting, you can take a dip and get cooled off.Today it was raining and sun shining... More
