This well worth the effort. I would rank the trail as moderate and strongky recoomend hiking sticks. Don't niss this one. It does have some really rough areas near the top.

Easy hike through varied nature that is just awesome with a 400 foot waterfall. Loved the bamboo forest, waterfalls, varied trees and perfectly marked trail.

Great hike. Bring sneakers or hiking shoes! We saw a few people walking in flip flops and one that slipped and had a long walk back on an injured foot/ankle. The waterfall at the end was awesome!

This hike is pretty simple. the trail is clearly marked and while slightly uphill, very pleasant and totally doa-ble in just under 2 hours for people with good shoes and an adventurous spirit. There is a massive and awesome banyan tree early on, great for a photo opportunity. a little further up the trail was one of our favorite things... More

Awesome trail, interesting bamboo forest, very impressive falls. Highly recommend you leave at least two hours before sundown if you're taking the treacherous Hana Highway.
