Hanging Rock, Dan River

When the summer heat makes taking a hike a dangerous, we like to find trails that allow us to jump in and cool. This page will be some of our favorite spots. Since we live in High Point, most spots will within easy driving distance.

Instead of heading up the hill to Hanging Rock, if you head down to the Dan River Launch area and take the River Bluffs Trail you eventually come across this wonderful swimming hole. It tends to be a little crowded on weekends and parking can be tight, but its wonderful during the week.

Parts of the river are deep and suitable for swimming, others are shallow and perfect for some fetch.
