Swimming Hole

Short fairly level hike to this popular scenic swimming hole!

There is plenty of parking here with large pull-offs on both sides of the road. The trail is a wide old road. Soon after you sign the register you will pass a gate and continue. This is actually a snowmobile trail in winter as well if you enjoy snowmobiling.

At about the half way mark you will cross a small stream and pass by many small cascades. This area is known to be wet.

At 0.9 miles you will reach the lake. There is usually a rope tied to the tree if you want to swing and jump in to cool off. You can also continue along the trail as it skirts along the lakes edge where you can jump in from the rocks.

The area is also known as a popular spot for bouldering.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
