We loved this place but make sure to go in the AM or early evening to avoid the people if you are socially distancing. We had such a great time. Be prepared to hike about .5 mile to the slide rock...up hill. Worth it!

This place was about a 30 min drive outside of Helen but so glad we made the trip. Our boys had a blast. The road is closed about halfway down so you have to walk about a mile to reach it. The road is rocky so bring good walking shoes.

We took three children ages 8-12 to find this hidden gem. It was pretty far out from where we stayed, but well worth the drive. The drive took us past beautiful lake Burton. Prior posters were right - when you turn on to Wildcat you feel like you might be lost and it seems like you are going up some random holler. The road is very narrow, and parking is limited to pull off spots along the road. It was further up the dirt road than we realized. If you pass the sliding rocks there is more parking up the road. The kids loved this place. We were there for more than 3 hours. We got there around 11:30AM and had the place to ourselves for awhile, by 3pm when we left there were about 20 people there. Parents, please be aware that the side of the slide toward the road is deeper and will pull the slider underwater briefly before spitting them out a little downstream. The side further from the road is better for the younger ones in the group. The water is very cold, but this was the perfect activity for a 90 degree plus day. There are no restroom facilities anywhere close, so plan accordingly.

It is off Hwy 197 and when you turn into West Wildcat Rd it looks sketchy but you are right! This is our second year going and I am always scared to walk over through the water and go down the rock but then all of us (12yo 10 yo and 7yo and husband and 2 yo son- with Dad on the raft) cannot get enough! We brought a river tube and that was super fun. It is on Moccasin Creek.

Wildcat Creek is located near Lake Burton, GA. It is accessed by a Forest Service Road which follows the creek for several miles. Along the way are several pull-offs where you can enjoy the scenery. There are several small waterfalls as well as the popular sliding rock. Additionally there are several developed campsites along the roadway with restrooms. This is a great area for photography. In a couple of weeks I will post some video that I shot there.

I always love coming to this sliding rock, because it's a lot of fun. Yes the water is freezing cold, but it's still a lot of fun. Do be careful while walking on the rocks because they are slippery. If you are looking for a great place to swim and have fun.

The creek runs all along beside the road. There are many beautiful cascading falls as you drive. It's like one long never ending set of mini falls. You have to pay attention because there is no sign just a widening in the road where people pull over. Rock is gentle and smooth as you slide. The pool at the bottom is safe for plowing into. Check it out for as long or little as you like. I will add pictures.

If you are not from the area, use your GPS to find this hidden gem. Because this creek is shady all the time the water is COLD, very cold! I slid twice (all I could stand) but my 12 year old grandson slid quite a few times. It is a popular attraction with locals and there is no fee. I suggest wearing water shoes as the rocks as very slippery getting out to the sliding rock. Some people suggested wearing old bathing suits but we did not find any place where the rocks were sharp enough to tear your suit. This was exhilarating. Some people even brought tubes to slide and that looked like a lot of fun also.

This is a popular site with locals and tourists! Grab your bathing suit and prepare to get wet! But be careful and keep up with who is in your group because this is self-serve--no lifeguard. You will definitely slide!!
