Swimming Holes:

Seneca Rocks


This swimming hole is at the base of Seneca Rocks and provides a great place to fish or swim while visiting Seneca Rocks.  The hole has shallow entry, so is good for younger visitors, but there is a sandstone wall on the far bank that provides a few jumping spots.  


Seneca Rocks is located east of Elkins and south of Petersburg on rt 33 (Google directions below).
