Nice easy jungle hike that ends in a great waterfall where you can swim in the pool and even has a rope swing for extra fun. My boys 12, 7 and 4 all enjoyed the hike and swim and had no problems. It was a dry day. At the end of the trail you are at the top. Back track... More

Ho'opi'i Falls is an easy 3 KM walk to two sets of waterfalls. Wear decent shoes as there are some steeper grades (dirt banks) to get down to the Upper Falls. Many people jump into the Lower Falls and go for a short ride in the current -- pack swimming attire, especially if it's a hot day. The trail-head is... More

This was a great hike. Very easy and a beautiful scenery. We went to the upper falls (which is really down stream). We were by ourself a for about 30 minutes. Nice pond to swim in and a great rope swing. A must do when on Kauai.

This easy hike (stroll really) was a nature lover's delight. The lush vegetation, the beautiful stream and the waterfalls (make sure to see both) made for a beautiful afternoon. Read the super helpful, recent Trip Advisor reviews to get info on finding the trailhead. We would not have found the entrance without the gate color info (red and white) as... More

We loved this hike. Our daughter is 3.5 and was able to walk the whole time. We obviously helped her down the steep declines to the waterfall and swimming holes. The first waterfall was to the left of the path and we were able to jump off rocks into the pool at the bottom. After we reached the first waterfall... More

I would classify this more of a nature walk than a hike. Its great to be able to spend a couple of hours and see the sights. Don't forget to wear light clothes for the humidity and bring your swim suit for the pond.

We drove past twice looking for yellow gate. It's red and white and there are no signs. Houses line one side of street. The hike took 2 hours round trip, including climbing down to the hill to rope swing. To find path going down hill to second falls take the path that heads up hills, then youll climb straight down...

This was the highlight of our trip to Kauai - the hike is fairly easy, the first waterfall is nice the but the real payoff is the second waterfall which was fantastic. We watched Jurassic Park upon returning to our hotel that night and saw the second waterfall is featured in the movie - very cool! Getting to the second... More

There is actually two waterfalls here. The walk down to them is pretty short, and you can swim at the second falls, there is an easy pool to go into. The other falls had some locals (and some brave tourists) jumping off a cliff into the pool below.
