Ventana Camp Professional Review and Guide
"Pine Ridge is the most heavily used trail in the wilderness, as most hikers set their sights on Sykes Camp and the 100°F hot springs. Barely 4 miles into that 10-mile trek is the junction to Ventana Camp, which boasts one of Ventana’s finest swimming holes. Though far from a hidden treasure, it makes a wonderful weekend trip. If you go in spring or fall, when summer crowds have diminished and temperatures are still pleasant, you’ll likely have the brisk pool all to yourself."
