Did this trip first on my road to hana adventure. I was really glad we got there early (around 9:30 am) as the place was PACKED when we left (12:30/1:00). I put on bug spray but was still eaten alive, so maybe pack it so you can reapply it. The hike wasn't too strenuous overall, but it does start out pretty steep. I found the beginning the most challenging, being that it was steep and it was HOT! Once you get into the shadier/higher areas it cools down nicely. There had been a storm the night before and a large tree had broken in the bamboo portion of the hike and blocked the trail. We bush whacked around it, but as we were leaving there was a park ranger type guy with a chain saw, I assume going to clear it up for other hikers.
The stream crossings weren't too difficult either, but it is really just easier to take your shoes off or to walk through it. Trying to jump from rock to rock is just plain dangerous, and I saw a few people fall.
I wore some beat up, worn out pumas that were already leaking water, and ended up throwing them out after the hike lol. My boyfriends nicer looking shoes required a bit of TLC to get them back looking nice again.
The falls at the end were incredible, and I am so glad it wasn't busy when we arrived, only when we leaving. I would definitely recommend this hike along the RTH.
