Stand Under a Waterfall

Three hidden waterfalls to stand under.

HAVASU FALLS, GRAND CANYON

If you’re looking for a swimming hole that’s convenient and easy to get to, this isn’t it. If you’re looking for a swimming hole that comes with unparalleled beauty and earns you bragging rights for even locating it, Havasu Falls is where you need to be.

There are only three ways to get to this 90-foot waterfall in the Grand Canyon. If you’re really splurging, you can helicopter in. If you’re really athletic, you can hike a challenging 10-mile trail. The third option: Hire a pack mule to ferry you down. Whichever way you take, you’ll be rewarded with vivid blue-green pools and a stunning waterfall with a hidden rock shelter behind it.

HAMILTON POOL, TEXAS

Thousands of years ago, the dome of an underground river collapsed, giving a little skylight to this previously hidden pool in Texas. These days, the site is so picturesque that several movies have been filmed there. And with its 50-foot waterfall, jade green pool, limestone slabs, and stalactites, it’s easy to see why.

WARREN FALLS, VERMONT

It’s certainly not a secret swimming hole—Warren Falls is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike, and with a nearby parking lot that’s less than a quarter of a mile away, it’s easy to access. That convenience means you’ll almost always be sharing its deep pools, multiple waterfalls, natural water slide, and interesting rock formations with others, but the site is so dazzling that you won’t notice.
