Many creeks in this area, but this deep swimming hole is the perfect spot to work on your favorite dive, while escaping the humidity. Off the beaten path, and well worth the trek: An icy cold, deep blue basin tucked into the woods near the border of Ulster and Delaware Counties. Other say that it’s called blue swimming hole, cause the water is so cold that it make you turn blue. At the deepest part of the swimming hole there’s a rope swing, where the brave can perform a perfect double-backflip pencil dive.

This beloved swimming hole on the Saw Kill, tucked into the woods just out of town, is public, but it feels wild enough. No lifeguards, no amenities, just a rope swing and a cool respite from the summer heat. Be warned: You may encounter the odd nudist. This is Woodstock, after all ;)

This hike was highly recommended to me by the locals. It’s a bit longer hike but with few highlights. Overlook Mountain features a moderate difficulty 3-hour, 5-mile round trip hike that can be extended to 9.3 miles to include a trip to the nearby Echo Lake (allow about 7 hours to complete the round trip including Echo Lake). Make a daytrip out of this: start early, check out the Buddhist temple before the hike. Bring a picnic lunch & drinks at the top view of Hudson Valley (about 3 hrs hike). Continue the hike to echo lake for a swim. Then back to Woodstock for dinner!
