The excitement of discovering multiple swimming holes and backcountry cascades will be the highlight of this trip—bring your swimsuit! The highlights include multiple backcountry swimming holes and waterfalls, fishing for brook trout, and the chance to visit the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Lonesome Lake Hut (see Plan B). This type of trip is best experienced on a hot summer day, when the humidity and heat force us out of our homes and up into the mountains. Depending on your family’s ambition and energy level, you can turn around at any one of the many falls to make your trip either shorter or longer.
