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.

    Very nice site. It's close to the parking lot. We can stay there the time we want. We can eat local burgers that are good. So no hiking for a great site.

    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.
