Franconia Falls Swimming Hole
If you are a real outdoorsman like me, then you will love Franconia Falls. This is a true hidden swimming hole. In order to get to Franconia Falls, you will have to hike an easy trail for 3.5 miles. Luckily, you are able to bike the trail. Once you arrive at Franconia Falls, you'll see plenty of visitors as there is camping in the area. The swimming hole is famous for its chutes. You can ride the water for almost 80 feet, depending on the water levels. There are also plenty of places to sit under the sun and just get your feet wet. Slightly down the river from the popular Franconia Falls, you will find some quiet spots in the river where you can jump or relax. But the real champion of this site is the rapid chutes. To get to Franconia Falls, check out the ranger station just outside Loon Mountain in Lincoln, New Hampshire.

Sawyer Rock Swimming Hole
The Sawyer Rock swimming hole is situated in Bartlett, New Hampshire. Bartlett is a small town, but home to one of the more popular ski areas, Attitash. Sawyer Rock is located on the same road as Attitash, Route 302. The swimming hole can be easily overlooked, if you don't know what you're looking for. As you drive west along Route 302, look on your left for Sawyer Pond Trail sign. Just after the sign on your left, there will be a small bridge and pull off on the right side of the road. The Sawyer Rock swimming hole is great for large families, as it has something for everybody. The swimming hole has plenty of large rocks for sun tanning and picnicking. There are a few rock ledges that allow for some great jumping. The ledges aren't too high, so you wouldn't have to worry about the children. There are also some short rapids to play in. Despite its site right off Route 302, the Sawyer Rock swimming hole doesn't get very busy. It's worth the trip.
