Locals like to hang out on the beach of Rancho Rico Creek and wade up the river to swim in deep pools.
Park at the end of Jolon Road, where there is an open gate built into a tall wildlife fence. Pass throught the fence and turn left, following the trail to the dry wash of Rancho Rico Creek. Turn right and follow the wash and the old bridge footings to the river, around 300 yards. There is a large beach along the river.
