This hike can be dangerous! But you can also lesson your risk by only going to the second fall with the rope swing into the pool. Or just stay and swim in the pool and under the first fall! You will still get to experience...More

One of the best hikes anywhere! Not for young kids. Hike all the falls and take your swim suite. Can be muddy and very slippery if there was a recent rain. You will climb some tricky spots to make it to the top. Very adventurous....More

Insects are there so please wear full pants. Apart from that it beautiful, quite a bit of trek. Roadside parking, multiple entry points, we got lost trying to find the waterfall. But was fun. A bit slippery so wear good shoes.

It's difficult to find this as it's tucked away. You can park right on the "highway"/road and look for it. WARNING: IF you are prone to mosquito bites, I HIGHLY do NOT recommend you to go UNLESS you are covered head to toe AND sprayed...More

If you do one hike in Maui, this is the one. Make sure you go swim in at least one of the three waterfalls past the stream. Absolutely refreshing!
