Judd Memorial Trail to Jackass Ginger Pool

Judd Memorial Trail to Jackass Ginger Pool Professional Review and Guide

"The Judd Memorial Trail is a short loop hike in the Nuuanu Valley. The path crosses the Nuuanu Stream and traverses the north-facing hillside through bamboo, eucalyptus and Norfolk Island pine groves. A side path leads down to Jackass Ginger Pool, a large circular pool with a 10-foot waterfall cascading over rocks into the pool.

Descend towards Nuuanu Stream. Rock-hop across the stream to a junction at the signed Judd Trail. Begin the loop on the left fork through a giant bamboo grove. The serpentine path gains elevation, traversing the hillside above the stream through eucalyptus and Norfolk Island pines. Descend and cross a small gully to a signed trail with the Nuuanu Trail on the left (Hike 20). Stay to the right on the Judd Trail, and drop back down the hill."

This trail is located in a beautiful area of dense forest, on the slopes of a mountain range. It is easily accessible from Nu'uanu Pali Rd, which is narrow but is a beautiful drive. Parking is difficult. The trailhead is easily visible from the road. The trail begins as a series of terraces progressing down towards the stream. Almost immediately a beautiful waterfall is visible. Due to frequent low clouds and rainfall, this trail can be muddy. Exposed tree roots and rocks are VERY SLIPPERY. Come prepared with adequate footwear and also be prepared for mosquitoes. We were not able to go very far because of slippery conditions and poor shoes. Very scenic.
