Smoke Hole, a rugged canyon formed by the
South Branch of the Potomac River, extends
eighteen miles south to U.S. 220. Early explorers
reported that heavy mists rising from the canyon
looked like smoke coming from a deep hole.
The canyon contains many caves and spectacular
rock formations. Among the many caves, is Smoke
Hole Cave. Its name originates from the presence
of smoke stains on the roof which may have
been caused by Indian campfires.
