Went really early in the working, were there by 8, and avoided the hordes of schoolchildren that arrive around 0930 or so. The path up is well worn; however, is tricky in a number of places specially when wet. Not a spot to wear flip flops, goodsturdy shoes are a must. The waterfall is worth the trek.

Very peaceful. About 20-25 minute walk to fall. Lots of tropical plants and trees. One at the fall you are allowed to swim.

Great, easy hike. Not fully paved so be careful if it has rained recently but an easy uphill hike to a beautiful waterfall. At the waterfall you can venture left and find a pretty amazing tree.

The falls is great and worth a visit. DO BRING BUG SPRAY if you happen to be particularly tasty to mosquitos. But take the walk and see the falls.

This is a rather timid fall. We were there a day after the island received 8 inches of rain. Yet the waterfall seemed shy and unassuming. Nonetheless, it was beautiful, it was fun to swim in the pool underneath the fall and the hike as a little strenuous, but nothing our five year old niece couldn't handle.

With that said, it can be really muddy and slippery during rainy days. On the plus side, you will see better waterfall when it rains the day before (more water). Decent hike, decent length. Lots of people swim in the natural pool by the fall. We live in the area, and we just go here often. Can be a bit... More

Went on a solo hike myself on a Tuesday when my family & friends wanted to hang out at the shopping mall instead. Due to few rain storms passing through Oahu during my stay, I picked this hike to avoid other more challenging hikes. The hike was AMAZING!!! Upon arrival around 7AM, I was greeted by several wild white loud... More

We completed this hike around 9am.....it was quiet when we arrived but started getting really busy as we came down from the falls. The parking lot only had a few cars in it when we arrived, it was full (plus the street was jammed with cars) when we completed the hike. First tip - go early! Easy hike, I would... More

We rented bikes in waikiki and rode up, did the hike, and back in 3 1/2 hours. Quite busy but worth the change in scenery. Path can be a bit slippery/greasy so I wouldn't wear sandals, but people do.

Easy, picturesque walk to waterfall. Tour guide pointed out movie set locations for Lost & Hunger Games, bamboo forest spectacular. No access to water to swim due to possible rock slides but there was a track a but before the fall that took you down. It wasn't an easy track though.
