Paid for parking be prepared for cash only. With swimsuit you slide down a rapid of cold water on rocks into a small 5 to 6 foot deep water pool at the end. The Rapids push you down and is so much fun. Water temp is I believe 60 some degrees all year round but tolerable after the numbness gets... More

This fall was easily accessible to see. Since it was off season we had the view all to ourselves. We took the stairs down to the bottom and tried to vision people sliding down this fall. It did not appear to be something we would want to try but it is a popular fall.

Wear denim shorts so that you don't rip your swimsuit. The water is not cool, not cold, it is frigid!! On a hot day, it is more than refreshing, it will invigorate you! Water shoes are a good idea so you don't slip climbing up, we saw many people take spills that just looked painful. They have lifeguards but once... More

Visiting Sliding Rock in December and while it was not warm enough by any stretch to ride down the rock, it was still very beautiful area to see and take a little walk to. There are several little places along the way to pull off and walk to the rushing waters. Lots of photo opportunities. Lovely area to take a... More

This is a must do for all out-of-towners. A once in a lifetime experience that is worth it. The water was very cold, but the plus of going later in the summer (after Labor day) is that there are far less people. The fee is $1 to enter the area, but you can slide as much as you want. They... More

I visited Brevard, NC, last weekend (September 29, 2013) to attend the college football game. I'd planned to make the trip down Sliding Rock, since I didn't do it last year. What a rush! Yes, the water was cold. I knew that going in, but I went down three times. There were about 10 people there, but nobody else went... More

The charge is $1.00 per car, a nice little walk to the rock. There are lifeguards during the busy, hot, no school months... The water is not chilly, it is Cold! This is absolutely a must for your list of places to go see! Such a "memory maker" especially if you go down the rock! Such great FUN!

My family had so much fun at Sliding Rock! It was only $1 per person to get in and we were there for hours sliding down the rock and playing in the water. It was not hard to find at all and there are lots of other things to do in the area. We got there early, about 10:30am and... More

Our 2 grandsons (ages 9 and 7) had a blast at Sliding Rock. The price is $1 per person in the car, but that was a real bargain considering the fun these 2 kids had.
