Neat place to have some fun, just go in the WARMER months! Go early before the crowds get there. Even in warmer months, the water is still 50-60 degrees!

We went to sliding rock in April and the water was still very chilly. We had a great time though. There are a lot of people that go, and quite a long line will form, but it's worth the wait!

If you get there before the park opens for swimmers it is free to view. It was super easy to get to with a large parking lot and the falls are pretty. No hiking required.

I've been here before but never had the courage to go down the falls. I didn't want my daughter to have the same experience so I told her I'd give her $10 per slide for a 10 max. It was so cold she could only do 3. She said the water just took her breath away. She loved it! She's... More

What fun this must be on a warm, sunny day! We were traveling through western NC to visit some of the many waterfalls in the area. This one was on our list. We got there in the late afternoon - after the ranger had left. There is a fee attached to view this site. It is a short, easy walk... More

We had to do this with the kids when we were visiting Asheville! The water was freezing but the kids had a blast. We went on a Monday afternoon and there was no one else there! Except for spectators who remained bundled up watching our four crazy teens go down it. Kids said it was very smooth and not hurtful... More

First off, the water is FREEZING!! You have to wade through knee deep water (with rocks to slip on!) just to get to the sliding side. My 6 year old was determined to do it, and only her insistence got me to the other side. Once up there, there was a young man who appeared to be something of a... More

It was one of the best moments in my life! I slid only 3 times, but it was awesome!! The water was cold, so you wont stay in the water for long, but its worth the splash.

We have been going to sliding rock since the 80's and it is still a lot of fun to go. Be forewarned the water is COLD most of the time! Also, watch for the bump there is one area that has a bump that will rattle your spine if you hit it wrong. Even with possible downsides, it is still... More
