Swimming Holes New England focuses on off-the-beaten path swimming holes across the six states that make up New England.

With so many people flocking to the outdoors these days, it's not easy to find more secluded spots to dip your toes in the water.

  • Maps and GPS coordinates
  • If dogs are allowed
  • Trail safety
  • Leave No Trace principles
