Sliding Rock in Brevard

Sliding Rock in Brevard is an incredible adventure that is consistently ranked as one of the best swimming holes in the U.S. and, as a result, draws big crowds during summer months. We can’t blame them though, as the sloping waterfall creates a natural waterslide that is a lot of fun. Sliding Rock has a gentle slope and ends in a large, deep pool at the bottom, making a ride from the top a fun adventure that isn’t to be missed during a summer visit to the area.

Directions from Brevard: To get to the Sliding Rock recreation area travel north from the intersection of U.S. Highway 276 approximately 7.7 miles to the parking area on the left ($1 entry fee per car). Other options nearby include Moore’s Cove Falls and Looking Glass Falls, both beautiful waterfalls worth checking out when in the area.
