We recently stumbled upon this great blog, Wild Swimming New England and found ourselves mentioned. If you know us, you know we love that rope-swing. If you're stumbling upon us we hope to meet you soon and get you outfitted for your own river adventure.
Why visit: It's a quiet spot that allows for long distance swims, splashing around, rope-swing and diving fun for all. I also recommend renting a kayak, canoe or standup paddleboard from Contoocook River Canoe Rentals and cruising the river. They have a 2 mile and 9 mile tour. If you don't want to rent, try floating down the river in a inner-tube as well; it's a great summertime diversion.
