We went hiking in Tamolitch Blue Pool – McKenzie River Trail the other week and I’d say it was worth the effort. The hike was very easy because it was flat and the scenery is really very beautiful. You will see water falls along the way and the trail is lined with pine trees. The hike is just 2 miles to the pool.
The challenge however, is to get CLOSE to the pool itself because there is no paved trail to it. You have to traverse vines,and downward slopes. But once you get closer, and feel the water, it is all worth it.
I was not brave enough to dive into a 32 F cold water but the kids, as adventurous as they are, took a plunge and savor the experience. I thought plunging into the cold water will set you apart from the crowd because not everyone does it. So if one is brave to dive in, they are met with applause and adulation which made the experience loud and fun. SO when you visit Blue Pool, make sure that you have your swim suit on cause you might have the urge to challenge yourself and jump into that super cold water.
