Porely marked and not an easy hike if you go the wrong way. The pond is nice but more to see on Oahu. If you stay along the stream you'll be okay. Ps... parking stinks.

We hiked the Judd trail last week while in Oahu and it was disappointing. It is just one big loop and the signs are confusing. We never "found" the waterfall and even though it was a nice hike, it was not what we were expecting.

Pretty easy hike except for the stream crossings (over and back). If wearing water shoes, the stream crossings aren't an issue; I was using my hiking boots and didn't want to get them wet (for use the next day) so boulder hopping over was a...More

This fairly easy, modestly-long hike with beautiful views of tall trees and bamboo. Can be muddy with any amount of rainfall, but still a very enjoyable hike.
