Kenneth Ward Memorial Access
DESCRIPTION: This is probably the largest accessible swimming hole on the Mad River and can hold a significant number of people. It’s very family friendly and has a spacious beach area made up of small rocks and pebbles. The slowly moving emerald colored water is ideal for children, and there is even a rock on the far side of the river that the locals use as a diving platform (again, jumping or diving is not recommended). Its convenient access to Interstate 89 makes this a very popular area on a hot summer day.
