Sliding rock is a waterfall that runs over smooth granite rock, creating a fun natural water slide! This hike is currently CLOSED as home are being built here.

Not accessible due to construction
Closed! There is a residential community being built:(
I am so glad I was able to go here before it closed! It was so much fun to slide down! Perfect summer afternoon activity.
Great fun when you get there. Difficult with all the homes ruining the area
Great! Fun summer place
Sad to find that this has been closed. Can't even let me kids enjoy this.
Trail is closed :(
They have officially closed Sliding Rock!!!! Quite the bummer, I've lived in the area for most of my life and never got to go.
Hike up was mostly paved roads. Slide was FANTASTIC, and well worth the trip out there. Don't be freaked out about all the No Trespassing Signage. You can pass though, just stay on the trail and don't actually go on the land and you should not be ticketed. Biggest issue is parking. You can NOT park along the roadway. You'll get a misdemeanor ticket (yes, a misdemeanor). So park only in designated areas well away from the trailhead, or pay for one of the fee parking lots nearby.
The slide was great, but the parking violation was not. You will get a ticket if you park alongside the road. I'm not sure about the reasoning, but it's a misdemeanor.
Beware! They will ticket you if you park on the road. Pay the $5 to park at the house that offers it.
Access to the water slide does involve going through private land (unless you can fly in, take some long, unpaved detour through trees, or something). There was a security guard there who let us go and stay at the slide till 3 pm, afterwards filming was supposed to take place. The guard was friendly and stayed with us at the slide. The northern portion of N Fort Canyon Road is now posted as no parking and it did seem ticketing occurred. There was a home on the east side of the road which allowed parking for $5 (exact change needed though today there was a lady there to give change) for some missionary fund. No overnight parking there.
