Located just a short 6.4 miles away from camp, you can visit Diana’s Baths! This is an easy hike that leads to a beautiful series of cascading waterfalls. With just a 1.3 mile trail, this is a great hike for the whole family — and maybe the dog too!
Sometimes after a good hike through nature, there’s nothing better than a dip in some cool mountain water. Well, the Lower Falls of the Swift River are a perfect spot for just that! Located near Conway, New Hampshire, this is an 1.8 mile hike that’s well worth the journey.
