Slide down nature’s perfect waterslide
With a 60-foot trip down a natural rock waterslide to reach the seven-foot deep pool at the bottom, Sliding Rock isn’t your average swimming hole. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, visitors can enjoy the thrill of being whisked down the slide by 11,000 gallons of mountain stream water under the watchful eye of Forest Service lifeguards. Watching can be nearly as much fun as sliding, and you never know who you’ll spot from the two observation platforms — during the summer of 2014, Hollywood star Owen Wilson was seen sliding during a break from filming Masterminds in the Asheville area. Located in Pisgah National Forest just north of Brevard, Sliding Rock is just one of 250 cascades waiting to be explored in Transylvania County.
