“Be prepared for a great adventure”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

I hiked this trail with my adult son after a significant rainfall. It was a weekday and there were only about 20 people we met along the way. It was very muddy because of the rain. We had proper shoes and fortunately picked up a hiking stick at the trailhead. They were needed because the mud was very deep and slippery. The tropical foliage was great and the falls and swimming at the destination worth worth the mess. I think it is a bit muddy all the time so just be prepared and you will enjoy this activity more and avoid falling on the trail.

“Messy, but what a blast!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

The Maunawili trail is super cool! Its really muddy along most of the way (make sure to wear shoes you don't mind ruining). But its easy hiking overall, with beautiful streams and a fun waterfall at the end. The waterfall even has a pool at the bottom, so you can jump into it off the cliffs- there are several levels to jump from so even those that are scared of heights can find a level they're willing to tackle. Its a bit confusing towards the end- but just follow the areas that look most worn and you'll find your way. Its great even for a hot, sunny day because its shaded most of the way.

“Fun”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

This is the way real hiking should be. No paved trails, trudging through mud, water and slippery rocks to get to a waterfall. Yes it's small but very pretty.

“Slippery When Wet”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

This was a fun hike with a waterfall and swimming hole at the end. The dirt is slick as snot when wet or even remotely wet. All in all we had a great time, bring old shoes you don't mind getting dirty and be prepared to get dirty!
