Yes, IT is REALLY BLUE
Jul 2021
We came to Tamolitch Blue Pools at 9 am on Thursday, July 22, after we went to Sahalie and Koosah Falls. The hike is 3.7 miles and we finished around 11:30 am. I had read that the trail was hard to follow but we loaded the Trail Map on AllTrails and had no issues. It's not a difficult trail. We had no issues whatsoever. And it was still pretty quiet during that time.

When you get to the end at Tamolitch Blue Pools, yes, it does actually look blue.

A great reward at the tail end of the 2.5 mile hike
Jul 2021 • Couples
It’s simply an astonishingly display of the natural beauty!!! 2.5 mile walkable hike up and down a gently sloped trail and your truly rewarded with this one of a kind Blue Pool! Round trip will tire anyone’s legs and feet as you are walking on secure but rugged and jagged volcanic type exposed boulders and rocks. No sharpness to those rocks but they do create uneven surfaces requiring focus and attention throughout the hike.

Overall, super happy with the experience. The drive from Bend took 60 minutes and the overall hike including rests and time to enjoy the scenery took 2 hours.

parks department is lazy
Jul 2021 • Family
CLOSED!! wtf?? (on july 4th weekend? 2001…why? still using the covid excuse I guess. It’s really a shame the park department has gotten so lazy. At my job, I’ve been working since day one of covid. I’ve never had a day off, dealing with tons of people everyday, wearing a mask, social distancing. I got vaccinated when as soon as it was available. There’s NO excuse now. Everything, especially outdoor places, should be open. Just laziness on the parks department to keep using covid as an excuse.

Go Early During the Week
May 2021
This is a roughly 4-mile hike roundtrip. I recommend getting there very early in the morning to avoid crowds and to find decent parking. We were here late morning on a Sunday and the parking situation was tough. We parked right off the highway because it looked like the lower lot was full. It was indeed full and there was an additional parking area we couldn’t see from the highway that was also full. It was about a fifteen-minute walk from the highway parking to the trailhead. There are 2 pit toilets at the trailhead; but avoid them if you can. When we were there, the toilets had not been maintained well, no toilet paper, and there was excrement on the floor, I didn’t get past the door before deciding I didn’t have to go that bad. We could not believe the amount of people at the trailhead, it was unreal. There were so many people heading up the trail, and more coming in from the parking lots, that we decided not to continue. It just looked uncomfortably crowded and we knew the trail itself was supposed to be very narrow. We found a nearby trail at the power station and took that instead, it didn’t go to Blue Pool, but we could see the river at times and we only came across one other person. If given the opportunity, I’d give the Blue Pool hike another try, but I’d go during the week and very early in the morning.

Beautiful blue

The hike to the pool was not strenuous. It is 2.2 miles but very little elevation change. Be sure to hug the cliff around and down to access the water.

Blue Pool with Kids
Aug 2020
Incredible. We took our 4 kids ages 5-13 and it wasn’t hard at all. We also had the dog. The hike is about 4 miles both ways on an easy trail. When you reach blue pool, if you want to go down to the water’s edge you’ll want to follow along the cliff because the trail continues past and the trails taking you around to where you can descend to the bank are somewhat difficult to find. There is something of a climb to get in and out from the bank. If you reach a graffitied sign you passed the trails going around to the bank. Go during the week if you can. Go early or late on a weekend, because it can be super busy.

Gorgeous blue pool from afar
Aug 2020 • Family
Beautiful blue pool. However it looked too scary to get to the pool which was disappointing. There was a sign that several people had gotten hurt in the area. It looked dangerous with so many people along the cliffs. Then again, I am scared of heights.

Worth the 2 mile hike!!
Jun 2020 • Couples
We arrived at 10am to find parking quite full. We loaded a pack with water and lunch and started the 2.2 mile hike to the blue pool. The trail is easy to follow and is rated moderate due to lava rocks and lots of tree roots. You climb approx 300’ of elevation to reach the pool. When you arrive you say,”that’s really blue.” And it’s definitely worth the hike. The pictures I took will make you want to visit!!

Great hike!
Jul 2019
The hike to the blue pool was great. It was pretty easy but about 2 miles so you definitely feel like you're getting some exercise. The blue pool is a nice place to sit and relax before turning around and hiking another 2 miles back to the car. Although it's difficult to photograph, the blue pool is so gorgeous. I recommend visiting!

Easy hike for beginners or family's
Jun 2019 • Couples
We decided to hit the most visited site in Oregon. This was the most crowded place we have been. Still worth the hike and visit if you can go. Make sure the sun is out that way the pool is blue. The hike is mostly flat with little ups and downs. Family's can do it just watch the kids near the edges. We brought lunch and humped over the falls (not going in the summer, the water goes through a lava tube and comes out in the pool) to the lower section. Less crowded but still people. Beautiful and some swam. 43 degrees is too cold for me.
