Ague Cove, this hidden gem of a hike is worth the steep climb back up! Note this hike does require permission from the land owner as it’s on private property. The hike is fairly short, although a bit steep trail that leads you to the most gorgeous cove. It’s also has the perfect jumping rock.
There is a parking area outside the fenced area. Note cars here are often broken into so make sure to leave your car unlocked and nothing in it. My friend left her car unlocked but she did not realize that her car automatically locked after a few mins. Her window was broken for them to access her car, even though there was nothing in it 🙁 This was on a weekday and with permission from the landowners to hike the land.
This hike is best done with someone who has done it before and knows the way. You’ll be following a steep trail down that is a bit slippery in spots. Gloves are great for holding onto whatever you can as you head down.
There are some great overlook views of the area, make sure to check those out.
Once you arrive at the cove there is a small rocky cove area, lots of rocks to climb, and to the left is the jumping rock. You’ll need to wear water shoes or tennis shoes to jump as the rocks are sharp.
Also make sure to check the area before jumping to make sure your not going to hit anything. Keep in mind currents can be strong to be aware of your surroundings and the currents.
The hike back up while short, is steep and increases greatly in elevation. We had to stop for a few breathers on the way up. Make sure you bring plenty of water as you’ll be hot and thirsty after the climb up.
Know Before You Go
What: Ague Cove – Dededo, Guam
Hike Info: Moderate 20-30 min walk on a path, although it’s a bit steep and can be slippery. Hike back up is a bit slower as it’s a bit harder hiking up. Hike info can also be found in The Best Treks on Guam Book.
How To Get There: Approx. 20 mins from Andersen, and 50 mins from Naval Base Guam. It’s in Dededo just past NCTAMS if headed there from Andersen. After passing NCTAMS its the next road on the right. Apparently that area used to be the old FAA housing area. Again please get permission before doing this hike or go with someone who has permission. It’s owned by the Pangelinan family.
