This activity gets 3-stars based on the fact there aren't many other great waterfall hikes on oahu. Relative the Kaua'i, this would be only 2-stars. It costs $5 to park which is lame. The hike was fun and good length to feel like you got some decent exercise. Note our hike was really slippery as it was drizzling that day... More

Hike the trail for a good 45 minutes. The sound of the falls apo ears about three quarters the way up. The anticipation is exciting but wait, remember this is not Niagara, in fact enjoy the scenery the falls themselves are disappointing.

Looks like Lost and has great Shave Ice. Parking costs $5. Don't leave expensive items in the car as they warn of petty theft. Nice cool water at the falls.

We had fun trying to make it up the trail. It is made of clay and very slippery. Not suitable for prams or wheelchairs.

We got to the parking lot at about 11am and there was lots of parking. $5 to park which I thought was fair. If you are cheap then you can park somewhere in the neighborhood and walk in. The trail is well marked and since it was our first time in Hawaii, we were captivated by the scenery. 2/3 of... More

Take the bus from Ala Moana shopping center - I believe it was the number 5 route. It takes you very close - just a short walk through a neighborhood. It is a bit of a climb: better for people who are in decent shape.

The walk up this trail is a bit exhausting but well worth it. It is just beautiful. Some of the scenes from Jurassic Park and Lost were filmed here.

We made a visit to the falls in the lunch hour. The setting is very beautiful and you will hike through varied settings. The trail itself was pretty busy but that is par for the course in this area. The falls are fairly small but it is always nice to have a destination to arrive at.
