AAA Editor Notes

Sliding Rock is 8 mi. n. of jct. US 276 and US 64. Sheets of bracingly cold mountain water cascade down this 60-foot-long natural waterslide, plunging daredevils into a 7-foot-deep natural pool. There are wading pools in the vicinity, but no pools for swimming. Note: During thunderstorms and times of high water run-off, Sliding Rock is closed; phone ahead to verify accessibility. Changing facilities are available in the summer. Picnicking and alcohol are prohibited.
$2; free (ages 0-6).
Hours: Open daily all year. Lifeguards are on duty daily 10-6, Memorial Day to mid-Aug.; Mon.-Sat. 10-6, mid-Aug. through Labor Day.
