ExtraHyperActive: Where The River Flows : An All-American Swimming Hole

Where The River Flows : An All-American Swimming Hole


Summer heat means travelers will be flocking to beaches and lakefronts in droves. And there's no better place to take a dip than in an all-American swimming hole !

Swimming holes come in many shapes and sizes, but you'll know one when you see it: a refreshing pool under a waterfall, a cool mountain stream, a crisp freshwater spring, a shaded grotto, a desert creek. No matter the locale, there's an intimacy to the experience, fewer distractions, a deeper connection to nature.

One place like that we found on the Green River, not far away from the popular Flaming Geyser Park.

Already popular among tubers, rafters, and kayakers, the Green River flows through a ""Jurassic Park" like narrow moss covered canyon. Winding around overhanging rock cliffs with water falls pouring into the white water rapids, you are immersed in a lost world when floating the Green River.

The combination of scenery and excitement has also made this river popular among regular beach-goers. The River's many swimming holes are "classic local spots" that are little known by outsiders.

This river offers something for everyone : swift, shallow, crystal clear water to sit in and relax, deep dark holes to dive in, fast rapids and river trains to ride in your tube or on a boogie board, and what says “swimming hole” more than an old-fashioned rope swing ?

Fun, beautiful, and accessible- all this makes the Green River an  All-American Swimming Hole
