The Red Pond and Blanco River Pool

A hike or horseback ride from the Las Pailas park entrance, this dynamic duo offers beautiful and natural surroundings. The Red Pond is a red and white solid rock formation, created by lava runoff many years ago. Its neighboring Blanco River pool is a quiet, tranquil pool of clear water surrounded by only forest and birdsong. Round trip, including time spent relaxing and enjoying these two natural wonders, will last three or four hours.
