This is a very easy hike. It is a beautiful rainforest hike about a mile one way. Be sure to wear a good pair of shoes for walking/hiking. No flip flops or sandles. This is wet because of the rain and you will get muddy as well but it is worth it. We read there was a problem with mosquitos... More

I am going to say this is a must see when visiting Oahu. A lot of people are a bit stunned, disappointed perhaps upon driving to and checking in to their Honolulu/Waikiki hotel. The Hawaii 5-0 episodes didn't sufficiently prepare them for the fact - It's a big city. Take away the tropical plants and you'd swear you were back... More

This was our first hike of the trip! It rained and were soaked adding another dimension of tropical to the luscious follage. After the phenomenal views from the top, the dip into the falls was a perfect cool off. The Teens said it was one of the best hikes they did.

Really did not know what to expect other than a waterfall but wow! Be prepared for an easy hike about three quarters of a mile but very very very muddy. The vegetation is beautiful and depending on the weather and rain the water can either be very clear or very murky and muddy. Take plenty of pictures and have fun... More

We went in the afternoon for a guided hike and it was a lot of fun! The trail is half graveled and the rest is not (gets kind of muddy). I would wear walking shoes with good grip, take a poncho, water, and a camera. The falls were running really strong while we were there and it was so beautiful.... More

Make sure you wear appropriate hiking foot wear! It is rocky and slippery! I recommend that you go first thing in the morning as once the tour buses arrive it is hectic and any photo opportunities are darn near impossible. Having said that, it is well worth the hike and the falls are very beautiful.

We visited in the middle of the week so crowds at a minimum, but....the trail was really slippery at times and uneven. Bring cane or sticks - falls at the end were just OK not spectacular given the struggle to get there.

I recommend sandshoes/ hiking shoes. Was seeing so many people in thongs, silly really. It is a hike. Wet, muddy and slippery. You have to navigate your way over rocks and some boulders at the end. I recommend also if you take little children, you may end up carrying them. It is a great hike but not for all people.... More

it is a long hike and can get narrow and be slick in places not recommended for anyone having knee problems. But it is worth the hike to see the end results.

The hike is not too long or strenuous (although it can get a bit muddy and steep) and not even a 1/2 day hike in beautiful surrounding. The waterfall is worth the effort! The water at the base is clear and cool and a welcome wade after a warm hike. The trail gets quite crowded, so you won't be alone... More
