Located a mere hour from Colorado Springs near the small town of Florrisant is that of Paradise Cove and the short and sweet trail that leads there.

Spanning one mile (out-and-back), the moderate Paradise Cove Swimming Hole Trail is considered to be the most beautiful hike in the area, thanks to its many trees, rocky cliffs, and — depending on the time of year — wildflowers.

While this scenic trail would be enough by itself, it’s what you’ll discover at the end of the trail that makes it so memorable.

Arguably the most beautiful swimming hole in Colorado, Paradise Cove is a deep pool and waterfall that is surrounded by rugged cliffs, giving visitors an opportunity to dive at various heights.

As per the Bureau of Land Management, overnight camping, alcohol, fires, amplified music, and off-leash pets are not permitted in Paradise Cove (which is also known as Guffey Gorge), so please keep this in mind while you visit the area.

Kayak Right Up To These Two Hidden Waterfalls

Everyone has a different method for enjoying total relaxation and it can involve everything from going for a long walk to hopping on a motorcycle to curling up with a good book. If you love the outdoors, your secret to peace and quiet may involve a boat and a paddle and heading off to find hidden gems in nature. Kentucky is ideal for this and if you already enjoy kayaking as a hobby — or would like to — you’ll want to add this spot to your list of places to visit. Along Lake Cumberland, you can paddle to hidden waterfalls in Kentucky that are scenic, remote, and the perfect place to seek relaxation.

Lake Cumberland is a massive body of water that is well-known for boating, fishing, and other activities, but it is also filled with countless hidden spots that are downright beautiful.

While the most popular spots on the lake tend to center around marinas and other well-known features, it’s not too difficult to find a section of the lake that is much quieter, especially on an overcast day.

Located near Monticello, Kentucky is an area of the lake called Twyford Point.

At the end of Twyfords Point Road, you’ll find a section of the lake where you can put in a kayak and take off on an adventure throughout this more remote part of the lake.

All of the scenery surrounding Lake Cumberland is beautiful, which is what makes it so popular.

This particular section is great for kayaks and other paddling excursions, with typically calm waters and hidden waterfalls to seek out.

As you paddle from Twyford Point, you’ll come upon Garner Branch Falls, which is only accessible by boat.

When conditions are favorable, water rushes over the limestone, making for one of the most picturesque cascades in the Bluegrass.

Be sure to paddle up close and take in the view, while feeling that mist from the falls.

As with any outdoor adventure, always exercise caution and avoid this area after flooding. But when you do reach it on a perfect day, take your time and enjoy the peace of Mother Nature’s sound machine.

After visiting Garner Branch Falls, head back out and try and locate the nearby Hidden Falls.

These two waterfalls are fairly close together on the lake and the entire trip to see both is about two miles of paddling.

Here is an up-close view of the second waterfall, displaying another picture-perfect cascade.

Lake Cumberland has all sorts of hidden spots like these, so be sure to branch out from the crowded areas and see what hidden gems you can discover.

The Unrivaled Canyon Hike In Ohio Everyone Should Take At Least Once Cantwell Cliffs at Hocking Hills

If you thought Ohio didn’t have canyons to explore, think again.

Cantwell Cliffs in Rockbridge, Ohio features a deep valley, steep cliffs and even a rock shelter that visitors can explore. Although the trail is only a 1-mile loop, it isn’t for the faint of heart―but the scenery you’ll encounter along the way makes the journey more than worth while.

Located in the northern part of the Hocking Hills region, Cantwell Cliffs is a remote, yet breathtaking hiking destination.

The deep valley and picturesque cliffs were formed by erosion caused by Buck Run, according to the Hocking Hills State Park website.

The trail is a 1-mile loop that takes about an hour or so to complete. There are several stairs to climb, making it a fairly strenuous journey if you aren’t used to hiking often.

You’ll pass through several narrow staircases and crevices that can be difficult to get through.

There’s even a “Fat Woman’s Squeeze” (pictured), which is the most narrow passage you’ll encounter.

The rock shelter area can be a nice to spot to stop and relax. It’s the perfect place to take in the view and catch your breath for a few minutes.

As the trail is a scenic loop, you can choose to either hike along the rim of the canyon or down into the gorge first. Both offer stunning perspectives.

Cantwell Cliffs is one of the most scenic areas in the Hocking Hills. If you love an inspirational hike, be sure to put it on your Ohio bucket list.

Cantwell Cliffs is located at OH-374, Rockbridge, OH 43149.
