Take a hike to this waterfall which flows down to a stunning topaz blue pool below.

Tamolitch Falls contains one of the most picturesque spots in Oregon, commonly known as the Blue Pool. The waterfall only runs in the springtime, but the pool is still supplied by an underground spring throughout the year. Long ago, the Belknap Crater created a lava flow covering a long section of the McKenzie River. The volcanic properties' effects created a blue hue to the small pond at the bottom of the falls, described as looking like a topaz gem or iridescent glass.

There are two trailheads, one that is 3.3 miles round trip (Carmen Smith Reservoir) and one that is 2.1 miles round trip (Tailbridge Reservoir). It is a heavily used trail and is popular for mountain bikers, so the parking lot can get quite full. Early morning or late afternoon are the recommended times to come and hike. This is also part of the McKenzie River National Recreation Trail. If you are in the area, this place is well worth your visit.
