Many swimming holes along a trail, some beginning as close as 10 minutes walk. Great for families. This is a State Natural Area and CLOSES 7 PM (I think they lock the gate). A very popular hole is known by locals as the "blue hole" - this hole has cliffs, a tree with climbing boards and a rope swing and is about 12-14 feet deep. YOUTUBE . A beautiful spot but, unfortunately, there is often trash strewn about - TAKE A BAG AND CARRY SOME OUT, PLEASE!Courtesy of
