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!
