What a Blast!

Can you imagine anything more thrilling than sliding down a river of water into a pool below? Do it!

My 7 & 9 year old went down the slide in April. Pretty cold, but they didn't seem to mind. Not busy. Easy access off 276.

Tons of fun in nature. It can get crowded, especially in the summer with locals and visitors but it's a good time. I suggest sturdy water shoes and bring a picnic and extra towels. It can be chilly

It was closed when we were there. But people were still sliding down the rocks. It looked like a lot of fun. Places for family to stay and eat. It has fishing and a lot of fun ,

What a cool place to stop on a hot summer day....a natural water slide just off the highway. Be aware that in the busier times of the year this is a fee area (around $2 a person I think). And even if your not physically up for the ride down, its a great place to enjoy other people having a... More

I drove 3 hours to this sliding rock and as soon as we got there they closed it because they said it was raining but by time we parked got to the mountain it was no longer raining and the slide was hours away from closing time.

Visited in August 2016 while on vacation with my family. This place was packed today. There is an entrance fee but it is per vehicle, so it isn't too bad. There is a deck where you can watch people slide if you aren't brave enough. Also there was a line to slide down but it moved quickly. It was tons... More

An absolutely great place to slide on natural rock and land in a pool of cold crisp mountain waters, get out and do it again! Easy access, ease of parking, fresh mountain air, cold trout waters, near the Blue Ridge Parkway and Brevard, North Carolina. Sometimes the rock is a little rough so you will recognize the locals as they... More

I bet this was a bustling area in the summer but there were a couple brave soles sliding down in the cold. Neat to see an old swimming area like this still used by so many.

We stopped by to show our kids Sliding Rock. The area is open for viewing in the winter, but not sliding. It was a stark difference from the summertime, when it's covered with people sliding down. It's very peaceful in the winter and very beautiful, worth a stop to see when no one is there.
