I love to vacation in Tennessee but this place makes me feel like Im already there! We spent the entire day after our visit to sliding rock. Yes the water is cold, but swimming and sliding down rocks at this forest is a must!

We took a day trip from Asheville to Pisgah National Forest. It was a short ride and well worth it. My husband went down the Sliding Rock and we hiked with our dog. On the way back to the B & B we drove along the Blue Ridge Parkway and the scenery was spectacular. I recommend going to the Sliding... More

WOW - the visit center was sooooooooo helpful and allowed our family to enjoy a bunch of waterfalls and fantastic views! If you don't mind cold water I would recommend sliding rock to anyone ready for an exciting adventure - you won't be disappointed and the line moves fast - great experience to just enjoy nature!

My family of four, including two sons ages 7 and 3, stayed at Davidson River Campground for two night this week and fell in love. Quiet, serene, shady spots with friendly rangers and considerate campers made this trip a dream for us! The many interesting sights in the immediate area including Sliding Rock, Looking Glass Falls, the Cradle of Forestry,... More

Peaceful, scenic, cool drive. There are many places to picnic, view a waterfall, hike a trail, etc. Love to visit here when we are in the area.

Ever wanted to swim up to the base of a waterfall? This is the place to go. Awesome waterfalls. We also did Slide Rock, so much fun for about $2 a person. Want to go back and explore more of this beautiful forest.

Beautiful winding roads and the waterfalls along the way were so fun to see. This is a great area. We stopped at a couple of the museum areas, the fish hatchery, waterfalls, and Sliding Rock. Everyone that we met that works there was very friendly and wanted to talk to you about the area. Sliding Rock was really cool. I... More

This was a beautiful exploration in the mountains. There are many waterfalls along the way --some right by the roadside and others a little more of a hike. Parking was reasonably available at the particular sites.
