Swim at Hamilton Pool Preserve

Hamilton Pool Preserve - Search Nearby - Added by Sarah Williams

Enjoy a clear, natural pool in a beautiful, overhanging rock cave. This is a great place to swim with family or friends and the 50-foot waterfall makes for amazing pictures.

Hamilton Pool Preserve, about a 45 minute drive from Austin, TX, is one of the most beautiful places to spend a hot, Texas afternoon. A short hike from the parking lot through a wooded forest opens up onto a scenic, natural pool. The small beach to one side is usually dotted with sunbathers and picnicing families, enjoying relaxing day out of the city.

The park has a limited capacity, and often fills up on warm weekends and even weekdays. Be sure to arrive early to avoid lines.

Overall rating: 

amazing swimming!

I spent a few hours here with the kids! Lots of fish to watch and we even saw a turtle!

Beautiful views

Pack light. The 1/4 mile trail to the pool has a lot of steps and is very rocky. Also make sure to reserve your spot a few months in advance. It is worth the drive and very relaxing once there.

No Swimming Allowed

Pretty area, but not a whole lot to do
