Christa Albano
Sugar Hollow near Charlottesville, Va. Easy to reach and there’s a rope swing. Hold on to your swimsuit!

The Wilson Creek area south of Grandfather Mountain has holes so deep and bath-like, the only thing missing is my Old Spice Body Wash.

Leah Woody

Blue Hole in Rawley Springs, Va. It has a big rock to jump off and the water was always deep and cool.

Charles Leonard

Ever since a fated July afternoon in Shenandoah’s White Oak Canyon, I’ve had a special place in my heart for “thunderstorm trail running.”

Martha Evans

Lake James, N.C. Awesome water for swimming and paddling with killer views of Shortoff and sweet views as the sun sets over the Black Mountains.

Graham Averill

Flat Laurel Creek, Pisgah, N.C. Huge boulders, one swimming hole after the other.

Will Harlan

Solitude, scenery, and deep swimming holes abound along Pisgah’s Staire Creek.
