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.

Just visited Blue Hole last week with two nephews, aged 12 and 15. They loved playing in all levels -- a bit deeper and shallow. Lots of folks in the shady rocks enjoying picnic lunches and swimming. Felt great with the temp of 95 degrees.

What an interesting place to visit. A real swimming hole with waterfalls and different depths of water. If you don't want to swim, take off your shoes and put your feet in the water.

It is a creek. No fee. They have a little park area you can BBQ at.
