Blue Pools Walk

8 km from Makarora on State Highway 6, Haast, West Coast.

An easy (wheel-chair-friendly) walk to a lookout. 30 mins return.
The walk is signposted 8 km from Makarora.

A path wide and gentle enough to take a wheelchair leads through silver beech to the fun of crossing the Makarora River on a swaying swing bridge. Once over the bridge it is only a few metres on a boardwalk to a look-out over the clear, icy turquoise pool at the foot of the Blue River gorge
