“small but nicely maintained trail”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The waterfall itself is not that spectacular, but the trail is very well-maintained. It's a great introduction to Oahu if you've never been hiking here before. You get to meet lots of exotic, native birds and plants on the way up.

“Nice and Easy, Must See!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This is a great little hike for people who want to see some pretty scenery, and don't want a difficult hike. It takes 30-60 minutes to get to the falls, and less time to come back.

Supposedly, there is a "secret" trail to get to the top... if someone were so inclined, they might be able to find it near the falls ;-)

There are mosquitoes, and often times mud, so plan accordingly. There is also an area for parking, but it requires payment.

All-in-all, great family hike. I recommend!

“Great Hike, amazing pictures...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This was an amazing hike, it felt like I was on a rainforest safari. The waterfall was well worth the hike. Tip: Since it rains often take older shoes, the hike is pretty tough and when it muddy its pretty difficult if you have flip flops like I did.

“great little hike even in the rain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

very worth the mud to see the bamboo and the falls themselves. Walking sticks come in very hand for the mud as this is a WET areas.
