Be careful this place is usually filled with tourists but if you can catch it on the right day this is nature at its finest who doesn’t want to slide on a rock built for sliding

I love this place it’s so beautiful and well maintained considering all the visitors they have during the year. We had fun taking pictures and hiking around the river.

Recommended by a friend, this was a very fun stop. Be warned, the water is absolutely freezing (this was the first week of August right at opening time), though if you just jump in, you'll quickly adjust (go numb?). There are some sudden deep spots...More

We drove by Slide Rock and decided to visit while staying in Sedona - and glad that we did. Fortunately it was a weekday and not overrun by the locals and folks coming down from Flagstaff. Avoid it on the congested weekends, if possible. Nice...More

While it was a little crowded we still had a great time! My boys enjoyed sliding down the rocks and then warming themselves like lizards on the red rocks. The water was cold even in July but a welcome break from the heat of the...More
