Wawona has many swimming holes, several natural waterslides that kids love, and two beloved, easy hikes. The Meadow Loop and The Swinging Bridge. To easily access wilderness, that few do, just go out our back door. Google Secret Yosemite Wawona, South Fork of the Merced Wild and Scenic Recreation Corridor or Best California Swimming Holes on the Chilnuala Falls Trail (pick up Timothy H. Joyce's book, Swimming Holes of California for descriptions and directions to often private swimming holes, some within only a 15-minute hike and/or boulder scramble. Please always use recommended precautions to hike and swim safely.

Watch for the less commonly seen coyote, woodpeckers or blue herons by the house or just a few minutes walk to the creek or river. Go exploring!
