It is not much of a trail here. A short meander through some trees. The scenery is beautiful and you get great views of the swimming area from above. It is a fun place to stop and enjoy the water. The water was very cold in April.

Very pretty views but more of a watering hole to go swim. Very short mostly paved walk, crowded.

The water is refreshing but the rocks are slippery when wet so watch your step! It's great for a swim, but it can be a bit crowded. The views are great. This is not a strenuous hike at all. If you're on you're way to Sedona from Flagstaff, this a good place to stop!

Small hike and then we spent time sliding.. Slippery!! Fun for kids .. and very crowded. A family almost lost their very young daughter because she went off to pick up rocks luckily they found her but panic set in fast .. as water from slide rock is powerful enough to take you down some rough waters. Spiders in the cracks of the rocks. Great way to spend a day. Paid to get in and park. Bathrooms were decent.

Short lil hike, paved all the way till the river. $10 to park but worth it in my opinion. Since it’s mid January and 50 degrees outside, only about a dozen other people were around. Water was freezing but my girlfriend decided to take a dip anyways since her foot slipped and she fell in hah! Definitely want to come back in the summer tho.

We went 2nd week of December and only saw a couple of people. It was freezing. The cafe/store was closed. We paid $10 to access the parking. Might be more worth it if you visit when it’s warm.

Short easy hike with a lot of benches to look down on the fun. Dogs are not allowed in Slide Rock but are allowed on the trail.

Loved it! Hike is more like a nature walk. Getting to the actual water part is a little rocky, slippery, & wet. I highly suggest wearing water shoes; the rocks can be very slippery (SLIDErock.) The water was cold but the weather was obviously hot so it paired well. I was brought my three year old along I carried him during some parts and allowed him to walk while holding my hand.

Great refresher after the Devils Bridge hike. Fun place to cool off. Jumped off the ledge, slid down the rocks for a ways. Imagine it’s a fun place to bring the family for the day, too.

Fun place to cool off ON A WEEK DAY BEFORE NOON! Otherwise too crowded. Make sure to wear something that covers your bum because the rocks will leave brush burns on your bum. There’s safe cliff jumping and shallow and deep parts. Some shade to get out of the heat. We had a blast, would highly recommend.

Sweet spot to go swimming and maybe do a little cliff jumping if that’s what your into. Water is a bit cold but super clean and refreshing on a really hot day. The only downfall is it gets really crowded which makes it a bit hard to enjoy and take in all its magic. But still def a spot to check out.
