Rainbow Pool is a historic site that is unmarked on most maps, as well as the road.
Once a log bridge in 1870, the bridge has a life of burnouts, and flood-overs which destroy it many times. The most recent rebuild occurred in 1999.
You will find a series of small pools leading to a waterfall that is suitable for diving. Many youths frequent this area on weekends, but weekdays it is rather quiet. Bring shorts, a towel and your sense of adventure. There is also a cave behind the waterfall.
Difficult to find, it is a small unmarked road just before the first bridge past Buck Meadows as you head south into Yosemite National Park. Enjoy!
Rainbow Pool is a great place to swim and hang out. In the early 1960's I lived there while my father worked on the bridge project at Rainbow Pool. There is still great fishing there, as well as some wonderful B&B"s with much to see in the outlying area. Many great hiking trails. Lost Canyon park is a nice place to camp overnight on Hwy 120.
