My wife and I visited the Blue Hole a day after a spring rain and the water was roaring. The following day the water had cleared up and people were swimming and wading in the river. There is a great trail for walking and running....More

Our Dallas kids - who do not have access to a place like Blue Hole - had fun exploring the Hole with their Georgetown friends. One fell on the slippery rocks and cut her knee: I highly recommend water shoes with grips on the bottom....More

Not sure what the real attraction is here. There is a spot to swim where the river wells up that is neither blue or particularly appealing.

Great for an evening stroll and great for a cooling dip in the San Gabriel. Blue Hole is right off the town square and has a night rocky beach. Wading or swimming, free and open to the public.

It wasn't crowded since we were there on a week day. My grandson had fun swimming and meeting other boys to play with. He didn't want to leave. It is a great place to spend the days with a picnic lunch and other snacs.
