This tops the 4 hikes we've done across the islands. A proper hike! Permit easily got from Hawaii reserves Inc at laie shops. At a decent pace, but slowing for the final muddy section, took 1.5hrs to reach the falls. Hiking shoes made it easy...More

This is a very pretty hike. But, it's not for beginners. Steep, at times muddy, and long. Be sure to bring plenty of water and some snacks. Oh, and you'll also want to pick up a permit.

This trail is definitely a little more than just a hike. If you are going, be sure to bring lots of water and don't worry about snacks because there are a lot of cherry guavas everywhere. When you reach the coconut tree, your halfway there....More

We started at 9am and we're back at the car by 12:15pm. It's 3.2 miles to the falls from the yellow gate. The gate will be locked but you can get by. It's uphill all the way. If you see rain clouds over the mountain,...More

Great place at the top with the falls. Usually are running. Fruit to eat along the way (if you are traveling at the right time). Not very scenic on the way up ... lots to walk through.

The whole family took the hike and noone regrets it. It took a little longer than expected, but then again, we had a child with ut. The first part is really easy, but the view and the forest is beautiful. Later in the path gets...More

For those who enjoyed a small hiking trip and looking at different plants and birds, this would be a great place. The area near the falls is very crowded, But taking a dip in the pond below the falls can be refreshing after all the...More

If you haven't made this hike before, I would suggest on enlisting someone who knows the trail to go with you. Signage is minimal. Finding the trailhead and then staying on the trail for the first few miles is questionable. The hike is definitely worth...More
