Take A Short 0.2-Mile Hike To A Fun Little Waterfall Swimming Hole In North Carolina

Waterfall swimming holes are perhaps the best free recreation you can find in North Carolina in the summertime. And it’s even better when the trail leading to the waterfall is just a hop, skip, and a jump from where you park your car. Pack a cooler, a towel, and some sunscreen and head to the Nantahala National Forest outside of Cashiers for some fun in the sun and the cool mountain waters of Silver Run Creek in the natural swimming hole found at the base of Silver Run Falls. It’s so much fun!
