Cool Pools for Hot Days
Emerald Pools along the South Yuba River form a series of swim holes lined with cliffs, perfect for big air jumps or river-wide slack lines like the one set up here. This place is a lovely little gem and although it attracts locals on a hot summer day it is still a sweet stop not too far from San Francisco making it a great weekend escape. Plenty of wilderness surrounds so camping is an easy option if you want to get two days on the river!
