On a hot day, there’s nothing better than taking a dip in an ice-cold pool of water. One of the most well-known swimming holes in the Los Angeles area is known as Switzer Falls. This waterfall-fed pool makes for a perfect day out in the great outdoors.

Switzer Falls remains a favorite spot for locals to hike and swim for a day. It’s best to visit in spring or summer, as the waterfall can slow down to a trickle in the fall. Would you go swimming in this ice-cold water? Find out about more natural swimming holes in Southern California here.
