Swimming Holes

Scott
Looking for some new swimming holes to try out. I know people like to keep them a secret but if anyone is willing to share one or two I would appreciate it as a ski blog member. I'm about 15 minutes from Gore and have been to the one rope swing in Weavertown numerous times. looking for one a little off the beaten path.

Stay out of the rivers right now!

Recovery op underway in Wilmington at flume from a drowning yesterday.  Still looking for the body.  

Seems like every time we have a lot of rain some idiot decides to try swimming in the flume.  You need to respect the AuSable it's s killer river.

Coach is right about the rivers. There is a big difference depending on water level. Giving away swimming holes has become pretty controversial but this is a resource that's been around a while so I guess it doesn't hurt anything to share. It's the "best swimming holes in the US" articles on FB that seem to do the most harm.

And just to toot my own horn a little, this is what happens to swimming holes that are on FB; still an awesome place to visit though...

I assume you are referring to the black hole.

At some point the Dec is going to just shut the flume down to swimming period.  Seems like there is a death (or two usually trying to save the first one to go under) every summer.

The women that tried to save the guy this time narrowly missed dying as well.

Everything is a conspiracy theory with you guys.

Here's an easy way to remember if it fits in the Woodstove:

The last part is where it's grey
I think of it as mountain life which opens it to things like which pick up is good for skiing.  Swimming holes is provably summer sports but hey it's your site so you can the shots - we reserved the right to complain about it though.
