Ever Slide Down Turtle Back Falls in North Carolina?

This natural water slide in North Carolina is a waterfall that you can slide right down!

If you find yourself visiting the Tar Heel State and want a free ride down a waterfall, then get over to Gorges State Park and hike to Turtle Back Falls.

This natural rock wonder is as smooth as it gets and hikers can take a ride over its short cliff into an awaiting pool just for fun. Since you may not be able to get there this season, here’s a glimpse at what it looks like:

Gorges State Park is located in Transylvania County, North Carolina near the borders of both Georgia and South Carolina.

Visitors should be aware that the nearby Rainbow Falls are considered more dangerous and should plan for it accordingly. Once you’ve taken a ride down a natural waterfall like this one though you may not go back to the local pool ever again!

Just wear a little extra padding in your suit for this one.
