gus fruh 2This is one of the better swimming holes located on Barton Creek and the locals have been coming here for years. Be sure to get here early to avoid the crowds. You should know that all the swimming holes on Barton Creek are dependent on rainfall to keep the streams flowing so if it has not rained in a while there will not be enough water here to go swimming.  There are some pretty large boulders and some deep pools when the water levels are up, and when the water is not up there are times when you can walk across the creek without getting your feet wet. To get to this famous urban swimming hole you find the Barton Hills Drive access point on the east side of the creek and follow the trail down to the stream. If you want something a little more secluded, trying hiking upstream for a bit once you get down to the creek.
