Sliding Rock is a naturally occurring 60-foot waterslide with a seven-foot deep pool that has been developed by the US Forest Service into a recreation area. Sliding Rock is extremely popular on hot summer weekends. But, as the picture above shows, there are those willing to slide even on cool fall weekends. You can either slide yourself or watch others do it from an observation deck opposite the slide.
There is a small fee to enter the recreation area. The recreation area is open year-round, but the bathrooms and changing rooms are only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Lifeguards are on duty during that time as well.
To my knowledge, the recreation area does not have a street address. If you want to use Google Maps or other mapping website for directions, use Pisgah Forest, NC as your endpoint and then drive north on US 276 for eight miles.
