We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

As always, be careful and keep an eye out for dangers. The water is very cold and, in some spots, fast-moving, which has caused drownings in the past. Also, make sure to pack out anything you bring in and follow the Leave No Trace policy.

There’s a small parking fee, so be sure to bring cash. Get directions to Three Pools using this interactive Google Map.
