Emerald Pool Nature Trail, Morne Trois Pitons National Park

4.4
#2 of 8 in Trails in Dominica
Take the Emerald Pool Nature Trail through the thick, wild rainforest to reach a shimmering rock pool at the base of a cascading waterfall. The pool sparkles emerald green in color while surrounded by overhanging trees, lush vegetation, and mountain views. The waterfall stands 12 m (40 ft) high, and the pool is more than deep enough for a swim, so bring your bathing suit. To reach the waterfall, you'll take an easy, 30-minute hike from the main road. The spot offers a relaxing ambience and is a quiet spot most of the time, except when cruise ships visit.

  • Great outing. The pool is refreshing. The path to the pool is well maintained. If you want the pool to yourself go when there isn't cruise ship on island.
  • It was an amazing experience. There was a great hike up to the pool which looked incredible. Going under the water fall was like getting an intense message.
  • Nice place to swim and rest. All the area is very beautiful, full of green and animals' voices. Easy to go.
  • We went to the Emerald Pool with Pepper (look him up he is the best guide on the island) Its a few miles down to the Emerald Pool but its a well constructed pathway. Get there early before everyone else and you'll have the place all to yourself.
  • Easy hike. Good trail, well marked.
