There are two ways to access the falls, through guided tours. Both are good. One features a tour of a tropical plant garden and then the hike. The other is focused on the history of the valley. Both lead the hike up to the waterfall....More

The only way to see this close up is to take the cultural tour and hike. This was the highlight of our trip to Molokai. The hike is a little strenuous, with big steps, jumps, wading, and a little over three miles total. But....if you...More

This is a major Wow! First, the drive is amazing, and treacherous. It is about 8 miles along a 1 way road, curvy, and hugging steep cliffs. The view of the ocean and Turtle Island is quite spectacular. About 3/4 of the way, you start...More

I was on an UnCruise Adventure boat and this was a day trip. We met the family who lives traditionally at the foot of the trail. Greg went with us. It was 2.5 miles each way. Muddy. Two stream crossings. Needed to watch feet closely...More

This hike was exceptional. The trail is muddy and usually narrow with rocks mixed in. It isn't easy but it's also not strenuous. It's mostly level with a few small ups and downs. There is rock climbing involved and stream crossings. The water is very...More

Even though the place is really beautiful and tor sure one of the vest places on Molokai, it is once again PRIVATE. It could not convince me to do it. That only can happen in America- paying 60 dollars for hiking, it is not ok...More
