AAA Editor Notes

Hamilton Pool Preserve, 24300 Hamilton Pool Rd., is a natural swimming hole and grotto formed by water erosion over thousands of years. Today the pool is surrounded by limestone outcroppings and features a 50-foot waterfall, nature trails and picnicking areas. Note: The rugged .25-mi. trail from the parking lot to the pool includes steep, uneven steps leading down into the canyon; proper footwear is recommended. The pool may be closed if bacteria levels are too high; phone ahead to confirm schedule. Guided tours are available. Picnicking is permitted.
$15 (per private vehicle); $8 (per person arriving on foot or bicycle). Online reservations for a 4-hour timeslot are required May-Sept.; an online reservation fee is charged. Cash only.
Hours: Daily 9-1 and 2-6 (weather permitting).
