Great Views

When you are in Pisgah Forest don't forget to see sliding rock. It is great to view, or take a chance and go down nature's most beautiful slip-n-slide!

I've taken two Girl Scout Troops to Sliding Rock and both troops agree that it is so much fun! You'll laugh and laugh! It's a good way to enjoy the great outdoors! No electronics (except for cameras)....just a wide variety of people (all shapes, color and backgrounds) enjoying cold water and a big rock! A great time!

DO NOT wear your best bathing suit. I prefer cut-off jeans. I have made it a practice to go down it whenever I am in the area. Once I even went down it in late December. Make sure you watch someone else first and see the proper course to follow. If you don't you can be in for a bruised... More

This is a wonderful activity for the family and if you are a senior in fairly good shape - go for it! I'm 69 and had no problem. Depending on what area off the rock you choose, chances are you will go under water at the end. We were there in July and the water was cold, but don't let... More

We had a great time as a family. My two girls (10 and 12) and I had a great time sliding down the slick rock into the cold water. My wife opted to play the photographer from the various perches built on the side. Life guards were on hand and assisted with your slide. Felt very safe but still fun.... More

Our family visits this natural slide every summer. You pay a small fee to enter the park. It has bathroom facilities, parking and lifeguards during the summer. The slide is appropriate for any age that can handle a normal water park slide and you can go down as a pair if needed. There is plenty of shade and a viewing... More

this falls is very easy to get to and a very short walk from the parking lot. as we were there in early December there was no one actually sliding or in the water but my wife and I commented that it would be a young teenagers dream place on a hot summer day. the parking lot is quite large... More
