Tricky to get to but an amazing hike with breathtaking views! Be careful during slick weather and be sure to wear sunscreen when the sun is out.

We started this trail looking forward to a short hike. Well this took us 3-1/2 hours as there are no markers on the path and there are several pathways. We started on the correct trail but when we came to a fork we went left...More

This hike is relatively easy and not too long, with a beautiful waterfall at the end! The trail has plenty of markers directing you to the waterfall. Be sure to pack insect repellent!

At first, driving up to the trail head via Ko'olau Golf Course, I saw a bunch of signs saying hikers couldn't park there so I got nervous. When I parked and talked to a golf course employee, he assured me that parking there was fine....More

Such a nice, simple hike! Yes, it was insanely muddy and slippery, but getting to the waterfall only took around 15 minutes (me and my friend are NOT experienced hikers). The waterfall itself was so fun, and me and my friend spent around 45 minutes...More

Yes the waterfall was nice but the hike to it was a muddy mess. So if you plan to do the hike make sure it hasn't rained in days. The path has tree roots so even in dry conditions you have to watch your step.

The best way to get to the falls is to park at the Koolau Golf Course and hike from there. Another route is from the Pali Lookout but Koolau route is better. Park at the opposite end of the church because that's where the hike...More

Free parking, you can go into the water but not deep enough for a swim. Check To see if it is open, as their website shows it is permanently closed. It is hard to find the trail entrance.
