Sliding Rock

Things To Do

Slide down the rock and swim! Sliding Rock is one of the most popular destinations for locals with families and tourists both. It is a fun adventure for all ages. During the winter the rock is open for sightseeing, and in the summer there is a $2 per person fee to enter. Parking is somewhat limited, so go early if you can. It will be crowded on a summer week end. I think kids have to be a certain size to slide alone, but can sit on the lap of an adult. There are bathrooms which are open in season. For more info, call the US Forest Service at 828-877-3350.
