Hamilton Pool is a popular summer swimming spot for Austin visitors and residents. This pool is a protected environment being part of the Balcone Cayonland Preserve. The best things to do there is to admire the beautiful landscapes and the clearness of the water but also to have a bath in this peaceful environment. Just check the swimming status of the pool when you go there as the pool and creek are not chemically treated, the water quality is monitored and swimming can be restricted. Even if there are always a lot of people coming to visit the pool it is even worst on warm-weather weekends when you may have to turn away in case of overcrowding. If you’re not patient or not for alternative plans, you probably should forget about the Hamilton Pool!
