Cool off at a natural rock slide in an area so scenic it has been listed by Life Magazineas one of America's ten most beautiful swimming holes. Many people don't consider a trip to Arizona complete without a run down Slide Rock. This area has become so popular it was designated a park partially to keep it from being loved to death. Now it is managed in partnership by the U. S. Forest Service (creek and waterslide) and the Arizona State Parks Department (parking and other amenities). Those two agencies combine to make this popular attraction a great place to have a picnic, slide down the slide, or just catch some rays. Try to pick a time off peak-use periods for your visit, but don't be surprised if you still have lots of company.
On US 89A, drive 21 miles south from Flagstaff, or 6 miles north from Sedona. You can't miss it.
