Frenchmen's Hole is a well-known swimming hole popular with locals and visitors.

The highlight of this swimming hole is a waterfall into a giant pothole 10 feet below, with lots of great spaces for cliff jumping. Always remember to scout an area before cliff jumping. Make sure your landing space is clear of rocks.
