Easy trail for the whole family. Hand tram is fun but bring gloves. No steep hill.

Easy and VERY busy trail. Easily accessible.

Took 5 Kids did great !! Recommended foot ware and pack snacks and plenty of hydration!! Pool is super cold takes your breath away but worth it !! A bit of steep rocky area to get down to main pool must be in decent shape and have stability with balance !!

Solid incline through burned forest which had allowed beautiful floral growth. Incredible views of Hood, and in clear day Adams and Hamilton.

As stated in several other comments, you walk all the way to the top of the stairs and cross behind the sign that says the trail is closed. You then proceed to go uphill for what seemed like forever.. but it did eventually plateua out. the scenery along the way was decent. Mostly within the trees, we saw a couple small lizards but otherwise it was just a hike through overgrown nature. Due to time restraints (2 hours to get in and out) we did not make it to the end.. but it was a cloudy day so I'm not certain we would have been able to see much anyways. not a ton of mud for our hike. Very fun and would definitely recommend it to those who can handle uphill climbing.

very pretty trail. good time had by all.

Short and enjoyable. the highlight is the jungle greenery, which is as good as we've seen it anywhere on the island in the last 3 weeks. two very nice waterfalls, although they won't blow your mind. gorgeous flowers, vines, and vast soaring trees, though. slightly muddy but nothing to worry about.

My girlfriend and I are in our early 50s. 1.5 hours in and about the same out. Totally worth it once you get to the end.

Vue exceptionnelle à l’arrivée cela vaut le détour!!! La descente à l’aller est très facile, le retour en montée l’est beaucoup moins... très cardio ! Prenez beaucoup d’eau pour le retour ou allez y tôt pour ne pas être étouffé par la chaleur. Attention si vous y aller les jours de pluie le chemin risque d’être boueux et glissant

Decent view at the end but the walk down has no views. Do yourself a favour and walk Nu’alolo Trail instead.

Awesome! Just do it!

Absolutely worth the trek! I went down in bare feet and up wit shoes on - it is extremely slippery and very steep. Also, you can get ticketed and fined as the trail is marked closed - do not enter. If you are feeling ballsy then go for it - the views at the end are amazingly ng and the falls are a nice treat to cool off before heading back up. Warning - ropes are NOT stable and can break at any moment so try not to use the rope for leverage.

Very challenging but worth it! Everything from rock climbing, beautiful views of the Hudson, to waterfalls and babbling brooks.

Definitely a workout on the legs and knees, but worth it. Always come prepared! It can be quite chilly and windy at the top. We took a little side trail loop on the way down - it was a nice change in scenery and much warmer.

Incredible views at the end of the trail. You must visit this trail if you enjoy the Napali coastline and all that it has to offer.

Great hike! Challenging with the elevation drops and gains however worth the reward at the end!

This was a very challenging trail. If you are not prepare and fit don't do it. If you are afraid of heights don't attempt it either. It's a very crowded trail with a lot of dogs. I met a lot of hikers on this trail, some were friendly, others rude. I seen a lady with a 6 month baby on her back. This is definitely not a trail for that.

Amazing views of L.A

Great hike. The first 3/4 is realistically moderate the last 1/4 is hard, but completely worth the view. The trail has a couple routes you can take as well. Great way to see the town of anchorage. Wind can get crazy but it’s fun. Well traveled so you won’t be alone

This hike was exactly as advertised. Downhill on the way out through jungle-type setting that eventually opens up and finishes with jaw-dropping views. Wouldn't have minded some additional views along the way, but the end result will make you forget any complaints.

Tamolitch Blue Pool 8/11/18

My group planned to arrive early to Blue Pool, but a fatality on Hwy 22 caused us to take a 2.5hr detour. We arrived way later than we wanted to. Parking was already out on the highway at 1:15pm. This hike is about 2 miles in and 2 miles out. It’s a fairly easy hike that is shaded most of the way. The scramble to get down to the Blue Pool is a bit trickier, but doable. Just take your time. We had a group of 10 and only 5 of us were brave enough to go into the 37 degree water. If you decide to go in or walk around barefoot, I highly recommend water shoes. The rocks were extremely painful on the souls of our feet. Lots of hornets by the water, so be careful. We only saw 2 people jump from the cliff. This is extremely dangerous as several people have died over the years. Since this was a warm August Saturday, it was crowded with hikers, mountain bikers, dogs and children. I definitely recommend going early, on a weekday or in the off-season. It was still a great hike with breathtaking views. The shades of blue are indescribable. There are restrooms at the trailhead of Blue Pool. Also, if this was too short of a hike for you, definitely piggyback Koosah Falls or Sahalie Falls with this one. We would have, but with our unexpected detour, we ran out of time and needed to make the long trek home. Happy Hiking!

Best friend and I did this in the cold of winter. Well worth it even during the cold. We went off the path and made our way around the pool. Absolutely beautiful.

Very fun family and dog friendly trail. Bring gloves for the hand tram.

Park at the resort much easier to find the trail this way.

This is an amazing site! Expect it to be really crowded but the pool is worth seeing! Also don’t expect to swim much, there’s a reason why all the pictures don’t have people in them! The water is almost ice. Pretty easy hike in! Follow all our adventures on Instagram @themicrotourists!

Great easy and comfortable hike on a very well maintained trail. Great trail for company who is not acclimated but wants a big payoff for the effort. The water was very cold but not unbearable and the hike down was not as bad as some post made it seem. Go around to the opposite side and the trail is very user friendly. The anticipation of the water is worse than the water itself. Very enjoyable, casual and non-taxing.

Great hike with a good vibe. Lots of people and lots of dogs. Trail is well marked. Snacks and water were for sale at entrance for reasonable price.

Well defined trail to the pool but more difficult to get down to the water. Totally worth the hike down.

Fun all the way up

it was something else. I really enjoyed the challenge of this hike.
