Go past the Horseshoe Rec Area (above) on RT 7 and park on the right just before you cross the Maxwell Run bridge (see sign). The trailhead is on the same side of the bridge but on the other side of the road (may be hard to see trail from road). You will be hiking upstream on this trail (blue blazes occasionally) with the creek on your right. There is private property in this area (well marked) but you can go up this trail staying on National Forest property if you are careful. (The swimming hole itself is clearly on National Forest property.) You will eventually cross the creek following and old roadbed and, at about .75 mile, there will be a series of small falls and cascades PHOTO OF FALLS in the creek, now on your left. When you see the falls that is about 4 feet high off of a ledge, go a short way further and you will see a swimming hole.
