PHILADELPHIA, PA – Beat the summer heat and take a leap of faith into “Devil’s Pool,” a natural swimming hole located inside Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park. After a short hike visitors can plunge into the refreshing Wissahickon Creekwater. This scenic spot, nestled back in the woods is known as one of Philadelphia’s best kept secrets. The area is said to have been a spiritual gathering site for local Native Americans and some locals still claim the site is haunted. Best of all this natural pool is less than 15 minutes from Temple University’s main campus. The question remains are YOU brave enough to take the dive? Devil’s Pool is open all year round so if you are a true thrill seeker I’d recommend you come back in the winter and take the “Polar Plunge.” On a recent trip to Devil’s Pool I witnessed two kids jump nearly 70ft off an overhanging bridge into the pool of shallow water (everyone was okay) but this is not recommended. You can see these true thrill seekers and some other clips taken from my cell phone camera in the video below.
