Fodor's Expert Review Sliding Rock

Brevard Body Of Water/Waterfall Fodor's Choice

Skid on your tush 60 feet on a natural rock waterslide, fueled by 11,000 gallons of mountain water a minute, into a clear, cold pool. The pool is 6 to 8 feet deep, so you need to know how to swim. Wear old jeans and tennis shoes and bring a towel. Lifeguards are on duty daily 10–6 from Memorial Day to Labor Day (also usually on weekends September and October); you can slide at other times, but it's at your own risk and changing rooms are closed. On warm summer days the parking area is often very crowded. No picnicking is allowed here, but there are grounds nearby.
