Priest’s Pools

This was by far the easiest hike I have ever completed. The Best Tracks on Guam guidebook gives it a B rating for easy, but I say it’s a supereasy A. From the trailhead it literally takes just ten minutes to reach these natural pools. For us, finding the street to get to the trailhead was the most challenging part of this hike because the road didn’t have a street sign.

The top pool (above) is the largest and the best for swimming. The water was so nice and clear. We sat and watched tiny shrimp crawl over the rocks at the bottom of the pool.

The other pools are not as big but are still nice for sitting and relaxing in. From the top looking down it looks like a dozen individual hot tubs cascading down the mountain.

There is swordgrass on the trail, but the trail is wide so if you just walk down the middle you probably won’t get cut.

    Seeing natural beauty like this makes me regret that I didn’t do more hiking and exploring when I was living in Guam. Then again, I was a surly 11-year-old who was too cool for school if you know what I mean. Thanks for sharing this with us!

    Um, Josie, if you get an email or comment on your site from “mom”, it may be my mom….I have a link from my blog to here, and I think she thinks this place is all part of that place….she isn’t senile, but she is a bit computer illiterate… it’s amazing that she was able to get online from where she is (the BVI).
    Sorry in advance. She is a really nice lady, and she got really excited about your Priest’s Pools post; she commented on my blog: “great pics; guam beautiful-are the seas polluted? priest pool-can you swim in it/ mom.”
