Really fun! Not really a hike but the sliding rocks are beautiful. Make sure to walk all the way upstream as far as you can. The scenery changes every turn. Easy overlook path too up on cliff. Sidenote: It's $20.00 to get into park.

It's fun to hike past the slide rock itself!

This isn't really a hike. But it's a cool place to see. The river flows over some gorgeous red rocks. You can hop around the rocks for a short distance. It can be peaceful but mainly it's a crowded area.

Be careful as the rocks can be mossy and watched a few people bust open their head when they fell unexpectedly. A lot of people in the summer. If you can travel a little further out of town it's worth not fighting the people and traffic. Start early.

I would give this 5 Stars, but when I went with my family this summer, it was $30 per car! Beautiful place! Definitely a must see. My parents came and they are in their 70s. The steps you will go down initially were a little tough for them. They were fine, but needed to go slow and hold someone. In the summer, the rocks are very slippery from being wet, but wow was the rock jumping and rock sliding a blast! I have also been here when it is cooler out and in the winter time. Always a pleasure.

Went here with my mom after we hiked out of the Grand Canyon! Easy walk down to the creek! The creek is very crowded with people picnicking or sliding down the natural rock slide in the icy cold creek. Very refreshing on a hot day! My mom and I walked upstream in the creek a ways...only challenge is the rocks are very slippery (even in good water shoes), so good water shoes are a must!
