This is a huge rock with water flowing down it into a freezing, I said freezing pool of water about 6-8 ft. deep. Go on a really hot day and it will feel great. Now, let me warn you, this cold water can take your breath away and I don't recommend this for little children. Make sure they can swim... More

Not worth driving to unless you are nearby. There are better swim holes in the NC mountains. Check out Fontana Lake or

Fun for all ages. The rock itself is smooth and not scary. It is the icy plunge at the bottom that rejuvenates.It is fun to watch all the people going down.It is best to check ahead of time on recent rainfall levels... Not only will they close the rock,but you would be a fool to attempt the washout...

Had a great time with the kids who enjoyed sliding down into a very cold pool. It does get pretty crowded in the summers but it's a refreshing stop.

We always went 10-15 times each summer (we camped in nearby Crusoe - right on the other side of the Blue Ridge Parkway), and each time was a fresh experience. New kids to... More

Late in the day the water is warmer, the crowds are thinner and you have had a chance to get hot on a summer's day. We arrived at 4:30 on a Saturday in July and there was not much of a line. This is a fun way to spend an hour or so in Pisgah National Forest. Don't wear your... More

When I told the kids about it they weren't sure they wanted to go... but ended up loving it. Well worth the drive into the forest!
