A nice hike with a bit of everything from great views, to secluded/dense vegetation to the falls at the end. Yes this can be a good hike for beginners, but beware it can be slick with the water and mud. On our way up we met a group coming down and one of their hikers slipped and hit his head causing a fairly good gash. (They were a little more experienced in age - guessing retired age). Take your time, watch your step and have fun!

Good enough for beginners.

Awesome short hike with a beautiful waterfall at the end! Can be very muddy and wet but well worth every step!

Beautiful hike. Near the beginning you walk along a ridge and it feels like you're in a scenic movie. Short, easy, and scenic.
Great hike if you have young kids in tow.
While you're here, check out the nearby summer palace of King Kamehameha. You'll have to do some searching on the internet to find the trailhead but it's a really easy hike with some cool ruins.
Also the nearby Jackass Ginger is another short loop with a swimming hole.

Cannot find it at all.

Great trail! I suggest hitting the trail head no later than 06:30, so you can ascend before the sun bakes you. Trail is not a trail for novices. However, if you just take it slow and steady, on the narrow areas, you will be fine.

Beautiful hike. More of a moderate hike due to multiple stream crossings. Not for elderly or weak footed people. Family friendly, if hikers... You WILL get dirty... The path on the left is crazy muddy at first! But the valley view once out of the mud is pretty. The route on the right goes through the bamboo forest.
