Lower Ammonoosuc Falls and Swiftwater Falls in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
I found these in a guide book, but it was a very specialized waterfall guidebook. They drop into huge pools that are among the best swimming holes in New Hampshire. While other, better known pools were too crowded to social distance, I had no issues at these two. I spent hours there. Reply to this

Thanks for the tip. How far is the hike to get to a good viewing spot for these waterfalls?
Thanks for posting. Reply to this

On a trip to Texas a few years ago we went to a replica of Stonehenge- not as large but it was nice and weird seeing it in Texas. We also went to the largest barbed wire museum in the country. It was fascinating. Well worth the trip. Reply to this

Less than 10 minutes each. They are far more impressive as swimming holes than as waterfalls, which is what made them special. Reply to this

In Tasmania, the hidden gems not covered in the guide books are usually on back roads or in small towns. Tasmania is best travelled as a road trip, and I would encourage visitors to occasionally detour off the main highways and see what adventures a small road make lead you to 😊 Reply to this

Especially when it is cherry season in Tasmania...pick up a kilo bag at a backroad stop...guaranteed to be all gone by the time you next stop!!! Reply to this

Another waterfall swimming hole I found this summer: Profile Falls just south of the White Mountains. It's a big waterfall into a big pool that is perfect for swimming on a hot day. I never wanted to leave. The hike is about 10 minutes, plus the narrow and steep dirt road to the trailhead. Not mentioned in any guidebook, far as I know. Reply to this
