Classic Swimming Hole Adventure

Feel like spending the day with your family at a gorgeous swimming hole, but don’t know where to go? Let us handle all of the headaches so you can relax and enjoy your vacation. This 1.5-mile hike on easy trails will take you away from the crowds to an undisclosed swimming hole. Enjoy swimming in deep, naturally formed “potholes”, ducking your head behind a waterfall veil, or catching some sun on the bedrock.


Perfect for the entire family, our Classic Swimming Hole Adventure visits easily accessible swimming holes surrounded by huge boulders and the lush vegetation of the Green River Gorge.  Separate yourself from the crowds, but don’t wear yourself out doing it! This trip offers short hikes and unique water features that can’t be found at a water park.

A light snack and water are provided on the trip. Add a catered lunch from the Purple Onion Café for a picnic by the river.

The Classic Swimming Hole Adventure is a easy to moderate hike and is recommended for anybody. Life jackets are available upon request.
