Hike Less Than Half A Mile To This Spectacular Waterfall Swimming Hole In North Carolina

The DuPont State Forest in North Carolina is a fun place to wander. With trails that crisscross the forest floor and waterfalls galore, it’s one of the most sought-after experiences for hiking in the Tar Heel State. But most people arrive in the heat of the summer to hike the trails and don’t know there’s a fantastic waterfall swimming hole awaiting after only a short hike. Don’t forget to wear your swimsuit so you can take a dip in the water!
