You’ll Want To Spend All Day At Coos Canyon, A Waterfall-Fed Pool In Maine

When the temperatures in Maine rise (and yes, they do eventually!) the best way to cool down is by taking a dip. Ocean water offers a level of cold you need to mentally prepare for weeks in advance, but lakes and rivers are a great alternative. Of these, our favorites are the swimming holes in the woods. This one, within close proximity to a parking area, offers a great place to cool down plus it has a fun waterfall!

Coos Canyons near Rangeley can be accessed by parking in the adjacent lot. The area can be accessed year-round and it’s considered best in the spring and summer. You may want to skip the swim in the winter.
