Maine’s Most Refreshing Hike Will Lead You Straight To A Beautiful Swimming Hole

When it comes to enjoying the summer in Maine, there are a dizzying array of options. And between the beach, lakes and rivers it’s not hard to find a way to cool down when the mercury starts getting higher. If you live near the coast, you can always head east. But, getting to a sandy beach isn’t quite as easy if you’re looking for something inland. That’s why we love swimming holes. This is can be accessed by an easy hike and the journey is almost as good as the splash down!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
