Short, really short trail and the waterfall was almost gone (seems like lack of rain) The area itself is really nice! The trail is pretty much shaded

A small hike through evergreen terrain to a flowing waterfall with a pool at the bottom. We hiked during the rain so the trail was slightly slippery so good shoes are recommended if hiking in the rain.

We did this hike first thing in the morning ( 9:15 am). Beautiful scenic trail. Wear good walking shoes. Will be slippery after rain. Enjoyed the shaved ice after hike. We did this hike with ages 4, 6, 33, 62 & 64. All enjoyed it.

Under the huge canopy of enormous trees, there is so much serene beauty. A few expansive vistas can be enjoyed along the trail. Gravel pathway is slightly challenging in spots and can be muddy/slippery.

Just a 20 minute drive out of Honolulu, this walk is very scenic and beautiful. The walk is close to the aboretum and gives a taste of the diverse plant life that inhabits the island. The trail was quite busy the whole way, very muddy...More

This is a good excursion from Waikiki and only a fairly short taxi ride (about $15). The trail starts fairly gentle but there are a few steeper parts that need some careful steps. It is a little slippery in some places but not too difficult....More

Park for $5 at the lot just before the trail. If no attendant you can pay when you finish the hike. Rocky and moist trail opens up quickly to a scene from Journey to the Center of the Earth. Mountains above, jungle canopy and you...More

fairly easy hike to a waterfall. Good introduction to the flora/fauna of the island. I saw people of all ages making the hike. It is muddy, though, and crowded. Be prepared.

Hi There is a little hotel near the trail and there is an open parking lot next to it. They have someone collecting the parking fee. it was a reasonable amount. Five dollars rings a bell. Hope this helps. Ken
