If you have been hiking in the Catskill Mountains of NY then there is no better place to cool off then at the Peekamoose Blue Hole. Rondout Creek flows through an opening rock gap into a very large and deep pool. This pool is surrounded by a number of rock ledges you can climb up and jump from. The water is super clear (looks like the Caribbean) and a bit chilly (went in mid august) but don't be surprised to see some fish swimming by you when your'e in the water. With plenty of spots to set up a picnic down by the water it makes it a hot weekend hangout. It is best to go in the early morning on weekends or on any weekday. There is a parking lot a little past the trail entrance to get to the swimming hole but make sure you park so your car will not get blocked in by others. It is really worth a trip up and a great place to worth on your backflips.
