this park is small and not really that great of a hike unless you are older and can't take more than 3/4 miles of a hike. we were there in the winter, so probably not the best time for this park. in the summer the park offers swimming on the creek which is probably fun. it looks like a hot...

Slide Rock State Park was super fun! It had gorgeous trails and it was just really fun! I can't stop using that word. I didn't even go in the water and I had a great time! It's like nature's Schlitterbahn :) I would love to go again if I ever find myself in Sedona again.

This park is pretty and the water looks like it might be fun in warm weather, but in January we spent less than 15 minutes before turning around and leaving. Not worth the 10 buck fee for entry, but it probably would be in the summer.

Beautiful views of cathedral rock and wonderful flat areas to walk. Do not need to be an experienced or fit hiker to walk along the river and the plateaus. Very peaceful and serene walking off the beaten path. Parking lot can get crowded later in the day.

There is a reason the locals call this place Slime Rock. While the site is beautiful and during the summer months the water is refreshing, on occasion the water is listed as unsafe (bacteria levels). You'll rarely find locals at Slide Rock. The location is convenient to those not familiar with the area and the hiking is easy. Enjoy the... More

visited Slide Rock for the first time , not many people there so it was easy to find a parking space and walk where we wanted along the creek . It was a cold day so no attempt was made to go into the water but there were many beautiful photo ops.

This is a great location to pass the day or a couple of hours. It is pretty and has a natural rock slide! I only dipped my feet/calves in and it was soooo cold- I don't know how people were in the water. This definately would be a nice place to cool off when the weather gets hot. However, there... More

Nice for a little jaunt, easy walk to the slide, nice place for pictures and a quiet seat by the stream. I'm sure it's crowded in the heat when everyone gets to swim but we still enjoyed being there in the winter.

Pick a blistering hot day because the water is cold. Very cold. It is a pretty basic park with a rocks that you slide on. They do charge an admission but it was not terrible. The kids had a great time and it is a fun way to spend an afternoon.

Be careful of the slippery rocks. It's fun and refreshing but one can get hurt if they don't pay att
