Long Shoals is located at a fairly new developed recreation area called Long Shoals Roadside Park right off of SC 11. The locals may refer to the area as Sliding Rock. This short 15-foot drop is a great recreational area for families to tube and slide down the rocks or to just wade in the pools below.
