Smoke Hole Canyon is a gorge, where the south branch of the Potomac River squeezes between North Mountain and Cave Mountain. This canyon, with nearly vertical walls, is more than 32km long and 800 m deep. Where the name really came from is uncertain, some claim Indians used the caves for smoking meat. Smoke Hole Caverns are nearby and named after the canyon.
