Lulumahu waterfall is a great retreat from the hectic overcrowded areas along Waikiki beach area.! It’s a nice hike through bamboo forests that then turn into rocks and wooded areas as you hike up the mountain. The hike is not easy, and you will get...More

There are a lot of wrong turns that can be taken and a lot of unavoidable mud and water crossings, so it’s a little more adventurous than the average hike. But the same rains that made the path muddy also made the waterfall gorgeous. Unlike...More

My husband and I attempted this hike but it was too muddy. We made it a good distance but had to turn around.

This waterfall was just average, no swimming just dipping your butt if you like, the hike is hard for people with mobility difficulties and once you get there it is very nice to hear the sound of the water falling but nothing amusing or extraordinary...More

The trail to get to the waterfall is very easy and the forest is beautiful! We recommend it for a family hiking that is a little bit off the beaten path on the Oahu island. You cannot swim at this waterfall but you can dip...More

This was a really good experience. I have bad knee but I managed to crawl over trees and big stones anyway. It's easy to follow the path but it can be a bit challenging for some people. The hike there was worth it all, and...More

Was driving though this area and thought this hike would be a good idea to stop along the way and see a waterfall. It is not. This is not a trail for tourist. It’s barely marked by these pink ribbons and you get lost in...More

My husband and I did this hike, and it was one of the highlights of our trip! Just a heads up, there is virtually no signage or markers, and on our way to the falls, we literally saw no one else the entire way. So...More

Trail poorly marked, but if you research and know the path or go with a local it is a pretty easy and really pretty hike. A few creek crossings over wet rocks - easy to manage but take your time and be careful. Falls are...More

About 2 miles round trip. It took our party of 4 adults about an hour and 40 minutes and that included 20 or so minute break at the waterfall. Our favorite hike we did on Oahu!

Yes. We had a tour guide who took us up to the falls. There were others on the trail and no "no trespassing" signs.
