Hit the trail around 8AM. It does get pretty muddy in some parts but the waterfalls at the end are awesome. It's a little tricky to get to the 30ft cliff to jump off and pretty scary. Jump at your own risk. I'd definitely want to do this hike again the next time I'm in town.
Amazing hike. Just challenging enough for an exciting hike. Incredible views. Went early morning and was the only one on the summit. Passed a handful of people coming down.
*** Do NOT park where the directions tell you to park this whole street is private property and my car was towed to Honolulu. An Uber ride and $250 later I was reunited with my vehicle on the other side of the island. Trail was still worth it!***
It was a great hike. Plan on taking a bathing suit and a towel. As well as, wearing a good pair of shoes; ones you won't mind getting dirty. This trail gets very muddy and is impossible to not cross the river without getting wet, once you near the end. The waterfall and pool is beautiful and worth it all. Glad we did this during our stay here.
