Another attraction near beautiful Asheville, North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains area. Pretty cool experience to cool off and relax before continuing what usually is a very hectic day of sightseeing in the area. You actually get to slide down an expansive rock that empties into a lagoon and you can do it over and over again. Don't forget... More

The whole forest is great but this slide really made our day. It is a fun spot for going down the slide or wading in the pools at the bottom. Be prepared to go under at the bottom of the slide. The water was cold in April (no surprise) but it was great.

Lets get back to good clean fun. Slide down a rock and dunk into a chilly pool at the bottom. If that doesn't get you awake then just roll over. This place is fun all the way around just like God made it. When it is hot and on the weekend you may be in for a wait, but it... More

The Sliding Rock is VERY FUN. At first, it looks scary and jagged, and I was about to chicken out. But I tried it, and it was one of my best experiences while vacationing. There is moss on the rock which makes your slide smooth and comfortable. At the end, the water is cold and deep, but the adrenaline allows... More

This is a must do for your bucket list. America's original water slide. I first visited her in 1971 when there were no parking lots, no restrooms, no changing rooms, no nice wooden platforms and no steps or cable to help you get to the top. You just pulled off the side of the road and took your chances. Now... More

Better to try this in the summer, though, lol! In season, this is a fun place to get wet & cool off....it's pretty much like an assembly line at times though but an interesting activity!

Sliding Rock is a MUST when in the area! Water is breathtakingly cold but the adventure is worth it!

What a blast. Sliding rock is a must do for the young or old. Nature made the perfect side and plunge pool for the world to enjoy. The water is cold and the pool is deep, but the thrill outweighs the shock of the cold water. The is plenty of parking and many viewing points for your picture to be... More

This was a very simple yet very exciting attraction! Is basically a very small hike to a slick rock water fall you sit on and let the fall push you down top a small drop into a lake. It was a very fun experience.

Sliding Rocks is beautiful in the winter! My daughter is asking us to return in the summer so we can slide. Met a local family and they said it's a huge deal when it gets warm enough. Looks like good fun!
