perhaps our experience was not as nice as some other reviewers here due to weather. We went on a day where it had been drizzling on and off for a couple of days. It was very muddy and slippery and the mosquitoes were out to feast! didnt enjoy the views too much as we were too worried about slipping in the mud. The small waterfall was very anticlimactic. we ruined a few good tennis shoes and white clothing. Luckily I wore crocs and these seemed to be the perfect shoes! I was able to rinse the mud off. There is a water hose at the bottom of the trail. very shady path so no need for hats or shades. my umbrella came in handy when it sprinkled. the walk can get very steep at times. as we went up, there were quite a few who came down giving up on the hike before seeing the waterfall. $5 parking fee.
if you're short on time with your stay in HI, this one you can skip.

Niceif you have an hour to kill and you are in the area. Large waterfall-which is much better directly after a good rain. great, quick hike with lots of photo opportunites of the lush greenery and of course-the falls. Plan on getting a little muddy.

An absolute must see place while in Hawaii . The falls were beautiful . They will furnish life vest and you can swim to the falls and get in them and get some amazing pictures .. A very beautiful place to experience ...

This is a quick easy way to see a waterfall. This isn't much of a hike but can be slippery in places so wear shoes with good traction. Don't wear water shoes if you have sensitive feet as they are rebuilding the trail with rock and it will hurt your feet. The fall isn't much water except right after a rain. If you want a neat experience take a poncho hike in as a storm begins and watch the falls grow.

The hike started off easy enough and the scene was beautiful! Very much like a rainforest with a stream nearby. The last half of the hike was really muddy because it rained but it usually is always muddy so I suggest wearing shoes that you are okay with throwing in the washer or trash. Also, bring a mat or plastic bag so you don't dirty your car at the end. We ended up using banana leaves nearby so that we wouldn't get our rental car dirty. Anyway, the hike is not demanding and at the end, there is a waterfall! Although it was roped off, we climbed over the ropes and were able to get our feet in the water. Very beautiful!
