Snake Pit

Snake Pit

Snake Pit is right across Hwy 321 from Trash Can Falls on the Watauga River. This swimming hole is big enough to accommodate plenty of folks. Enjoy sunbathing on the big boulders while watching your friends play in the Watauga River.
Proximity from Boone: 25 Minutes.
More Info: Snake Pit is one of my favorite spots to go to. The river is wide and the water is deep. You can also seek shade from the trees that grow on the banks of the Watauga River. There are also a few small boulders in the river that you can jump off if you want to make a splash. This classic area is popular on the weekends during the summer.
Directions: Snake Pit Directions
