Swimming at Turner Falls is becoming one of my favorite summertime traditions. The water is so cold and refreshing and the hills pretending to be mountains are a nice change of pace.
I have room in my vehicle to carry a few passengers and more than enough room to store your gear.
Note: Sorry, no pets are allowed at Turner Falls.
