Black Bridge Swimming Hole

black bridge rd off route 17 - north of mexico - this swimming hole has been in use since for as long as locals can remember. the deep pool is a perfect respite from the summer heat. on occasion locals will bring along a bar of soap to wash up, but skinnydipping is usually limited to late night hours when it is dark. locals maintain a rope swing tied to the underside of the bridge, and the more daring jump off the bridge when the water is high enough. however, there are no lifeguards and it is important to know just where to jump to avoid injury. only people with good swimming skills should consider this location due to the depth of the water.
