Sliding rock is a waterfall that runs over smoothe granite rock, creating a fun natural waterslide, with a small pool at the bottom for a soft landing.This is an amazing place to go and visit on a warm summer day. Hiking up past sliding rock following the small creek provides an incredible hike, with some of the most beatiful scenery in Utah Valley.
It is nestled up in the corner of Utah Valley, in Alpine, UT. To reach the actual waterfalls, you can park on the side of the road next to a gate (which is adjacent to a white house). Go through the fence that is big enough for people to walk/hike through (It is NOT trespassing! (If you get to the HUGE GATED OFF AREA - DEAD END then you went too far), and it's almost exactly a mile up to the falls. There is a fork in the road, make sure to stay to the right. Once you get to the top of the road, there will be a "helicopter-pad-like" cement area. From here you need just to walk to the other side of the pad, and follow a trail up another 300-400 feet. You should be able to hear the water falls.
Once at the waterfalls, it's easiest to climb up on the right side of the falls. You can just climb up the rock and up to the top from there. Be careful, because the rock can be very slippery when wet. It's recommended to go down the waterfall one person at a time, in the center of the waterfall.
