Located less than two miles from the intersection of NC107 and US64 in Cashiers, Cashier’s version of sliding rock is easily accessed. While not worth the long drive in and of itself, you could add it to a trip to Silver Run Falls or High Falls as a side trip. Less than fifteen feet high, this smaller version of the well-known Sliding Rock on US276, is more about the deep pool and the chance to slide down.
To reach Cashier’s Sliding Rock, head South on NC107 from the US64 and NC107 intersection as if you were heading to Silver Run Falls. Whiteside Cove Road is 1.7 miles from the downtown intersection. Follow this moderately winding road for 2.5 miles to a gravel pullout on the right. There is a path leading from the pull out down to the falls. It is an easy walk down and there are several places you can make your way to the creek both above and below the falls. I happened to hit this one late in the day so there was no one present but on a weekend day I guess this will not be the case.
The hike is barely a tenth of a mile over relatively flat terrain.
