Sliding Rock is a waterfall in Western North Carolina, located near Brevard, so named because visitors can slide all the way down the waterfall into the plunge pool below. Each summer, many thousands of children and adults slip and slide down this favorite natural mountain waterfall.
The Rush of Water
Sliding Down the Falls
Moore Creek has a low volume of water, especially during dry spells. Moore Cove Falls is most spectacular after a good rain. Extended dry weather can reduce the falls to a trickle. The best part of this waterfall is the ability to walk behind it and hang out under a large rock overhang.
Water Flow from the Rocks
Near the popular Looking Glass Falls is the hidden jewel of Moore Cove Falls, a towering, 50-foot free-falling waterfall set in a scenic creek valley filled with fern and rhododendron located in the Pisgah National Forest near Brevard, North Carolina
