The Hike To This Gorgeous Maine Swimming Hole Is Everything You Could Imagine

When the weather becomes warm, one of our favorite activities is to hike to a swimming hole in Maine. It combines the best of all Maine worlds — great trails and even better lakes and ponds. The trail we’re telling you about today is fun and it offers a great way to build up a sweat. Then, when you’re nice and hot, you’ll love the chance to jump in the pond located at the summit. This hike leads to one of Maine’s best swimming holes.

You’ll find the trailhead at the following address: Byron Road, unincorporated Township 6, Maine. This is north of Weld and fairly easy to find on a map.
