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

I went to sliding rock for my birthday, and got much more than I was expecting. The route to Pisgah from Gastonia is very scenic. The water was a bit cold, but not unbearable. Everyone was nice and I especially appreciated that there were life guards on duty. I would have stayed longer but time did not permit. Definitely a... More

During the milder weather, this is an excellent spot for anyone to play on a hot day. The rock is slick, and you have to go up to the top via the line, so you need to be physically fit. The water is chilly but feels great. The mountains around this area allow one to see the true hidden beauty... More

Went to Sliding Rock with my American friends and their family who have been going there since they were children. First of all I watched as I'd been told by them that it might be a bit too much for an English grannie in her seventies with two replacement hips, and that when you hit the water at the bottom...

This place is a blast. Where else can you slide down a rock into freezing water? I am typically NOT a thrill seeker. When we went to the waterpark this summer, I completely chickened out on the scarier rides. I had been to Sliding Rock as a kid, but this was my first visit as an adult and I hadn't... More

Where else can you have this kind of fun for $2? Took my 5-year-old granddaughter and she had a blast. She wanted to do it over and over again. The water is cold (50s), but it feels good on a warm day. Be careful as you walk out at the top because the rocks are VERY slippery. Be careful at... More

My family loved this rock. Parking is limited so get there early. You won't be disappointed. They have bathrooms outside the rock as well. My daughter said it was a once in a lifetime experience.
