8/6/2017-Was pretty good weather today and hike had a little mud. Trail was fairly easy to navigate and only encountered 8 groups of hikers the whole time. Trail is mostly shaded so that's a plus and not too many were swimming at Jackass Ginger Pool. Please be aware some people do let their dogs roam without a leash on this trail.

More of a nature walk than a hike, but very rewarding! Wear your swimsuit and bring some good hiking sandals or water shoes to swim in the Jackass Ginger pool.

The trail is really well marked with trail signs and pink trail markers. It is a loop trail that goes by a waterfall/swimming hole, and then through some jungle and forest. It was slightly muddy but really not that bad. It was a nice little hike just to walk around for an hour or so.

Nice easy hike. Kids will have fun. Only challenge with younger kids (5 and under) is crossing the stream where thy will need help.

The pools was very nice. I found out after down the road a bit is a trail that leads from the road to the pools versus taking the rocky trailhead down.

One of my favorite little hikes to take my dogs. Would be perfect for families with small children (we see groups all the time). If you want to find the jackass ginger pool it is not immediately obvious. Two ways: when you reach the stream crossing before the bamboo forest, you can choose to keep to the stream and continue alongside and do a scramble until you reach the pool at the end (this takes more time but is less steep than the following). Your second choice is to take a right after crossing the stream into the bamboo forest and continue up the little rock climb to the main path and just listen to the river and keep looking towards your right. You will soon hear the waterfall (less than 1/4 mile) and see a "clearish" area to scramble down the hill to the pool.
