Hike To An Emerald Lagoon On This Easy Trail In North Carolina
When temperatures rise in North Carolina, we tend to seek out ways to cool off. Taking a dip in a cold mountain waterfall is a sure way to ease the effects of hot summer days this year, but you don’t have to wait until the sweltering days of summer to enjoy a waterfall hike – especially when the swimming hole is as jaw-dropping gorgeous as this one.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
You never know what you’ll find along the trail in the mountains of North Carolina and an emerald lagoon is really unique. Have you hiked to Midnight Hole before? We’d love to hear all about your experience (and see your photos) in our comments!
Midnight Hole is accessible via the Big Creek Trailhead near Waynesville, North Carolina. A map with the location of the trailhead can be found here. Learn more about the hike from those who’ve already made the trek, in the comments at this link on alltrails.com!
