Get to experience the longest sled run on the East Coast at Blackwater Falls State Park. Everyone, including kids will love the sled run, which is an exhilarating experience where riders will go zipping down more than a quarter mile through the fresh mountain snow.

Relax and hop on the 1/4 mile long magic carpet conveyor, don’t forget to wear proper winter weather gear, such as a snow jacket, pants, boots, etc.

The first thing to keep in mind when you’re entering the park is the sled run itself isn’t clearly labeled.  Instead, follow the signs to Lindy Point.  This will take you across the Blackwater River and past the lodge.  There is no need to stop at the lodge since you will either purchase your tickets ahead of time or directly from the staff at the sled run’s center.  The sled run center also acts as a warming hut and snack bar.
