"Perfect on a hot summer day, this pleasant walk cuts through the woods to a string of some of the state’s finest swimming holes. There are many brooks named Cascade Brook in New Hampshire, but on a hot summer day, this is the best one. This short hike leads to a string of swimming holes and rock waterslides. Plan for plenty of time to relax and swim—you won’t want to leave!" Read more
