Slide Rock

Ahead of us is Slide Rock State Park. If you have your windows rolled down you might begin to hear the sounds of delight, as swimmers slide down the red rocks into Oak Creek. This is a favorite spot to play in the creek. The spectacular red rock spires here send the imagination on flights of fancy, suggesting a giant cathedral or a mystical city of Red Rock.

When you first enter Slide Rock State Park you’ll be surprised to find yourself walking through an apple orchard. Frank Pendley came here in 1910 and started planting apple trees the same year. One tree from his original orchard is still growing here.
