What to See at Slide Rock Park
Remnants of the old homestead such as the old water wheel, cabins, and barn can be seen while you make your way down the winding path towards the main attraction, veer to the right at the end of the path near the old apple picking barn and walk down the stairs to reach a chilly natural rock water slide adjacent to the original homestead.
Not too far to your left you will spot the popular spot to slide down into the cold water.
Down below, across the footbridge and to your right is a deeper part of the water that is a popular spot to fish for Rainbow Trout in Oak Creek.
Walking further to your left and pass the water slide there are plenty of less crowded spots to enjoy nature and Oak Creek. Even in Summer the water is COLD and the rocks are slippery so wearing shoes is not a bad idea.
There is a gift shop as well as restrooms at this park.
