The hike to Karloo pools is a moderately easy short day hike that is best done early in the morning to avoid the crowds.

Starting from Heathcote Train Station, the start of the track is not too far, and visibly signposted along the fire trail that is just next to the fire station.

This place is extremely popular in the summer which lots of kids and their music, so best to arrive early and have the place to yourself before the crowd gets in.
