Non-swimming days are the best

Trail View
The trail loops completely around the overhang of the grotto. One spot along this section is quite narrow and requires a sideways shuffle.

Comments: Due to higher bacteria levels the pool was closed to swimming. That meant fewer people in the park and less noise. The trail to the pool is very easy with a fantastic view awaiting. The trail to the river should not be passed up though. A couple of spots along the trail allow access to the creek's edge amongst the large Cypress trees.
