It's a 1.5 mile hike and it's not paved. It took me long because I have a bad knee. One there I managed to get down and go in the water which was very cold but crystal clear. Very nice place

This was a great hike and one of the highlights of our trip. I have 2-8 year olds and a 12 year old. The rock jump just topped it all of! Bring a back pack, water, bug spray, and water shoes.

Our rafting guide told us about this spot. What a fun day this was! First we parked and had to hike 1.5 miles to the swimming hole. I would recommend gym shoes for the hike and water shoes once you get to the swimming. My...More

We had a great hike today to midnight hole. This place is great. It does get a bit busy but it is totally worth it. The short 1.5 mile hike isn't a bad hike at all (we are from FL) not too steep and the...More

It's in The Smoky Mountain National Park and FREE. This is where a lot of locals go to cool off. The hike to get there is about 1.5 miles.
