Mermaids Pools has limited signage, and no mobile phone range. Please take water and food, and wear suitable footwear.
Mermaids Pools is a short walk along Bargo River beginning at Rockford Road Bridge. Take Rockford Road from Tahmoor, cross Rockford Bridge, right on Charles Point Road to the car park. Walk under the bridge, following the track.
After reaching a flat rock the track splits in two. One track (The Naked Way) takes walkers along a ridge on an easy walk. The other track follows Bargo River (The Potholes Track) and involves some rock hopping.
The tracks meet up on the Matilda Track, which leads to a track down to The See Through Pool, or continue to the Mermaids Pool and Lookout Area.
The path is not suitable for young children or the elderly, due to steep cliffs as well as water hazards.
1.5 hours return walk; Grade Four walk.
