Includes: McKenzie River National Recreation Trail, the "Blue Hole" and Tamolitch Falls. A fern-grotto pool on the McKenzie River, near a paved road. Swimwear advised. This little pool, well-camouflaged among the many lookalikes along the riverbank, is a closely guarded secret. If you were rafting downstream, it would never catch your eye. Walking right above it on the McKenzie River Trail , you wouldn't see the pool through the trees. Even driving across the nearby bridge and looking right at it, there are no telltale signs to give it away unless it's occupied.
