The hike is moderate, most of it is shaded. The waterfall was disappointing, but the view on top of the canyon out to the Pacific was breathtaking! Definitely worth the trip!

Unfortunately it was raining the entire hike. Very muddy and it was slippery. Lots of people. It was a fun trip none the less. There were chickens even up there. haha.

Heavily trafficked so be prepared to fight the crowds, nice views and pretty easy hike for all skill levels.

Must do this if u in Kauai ! Bring a sandwich and few frozen bottles of water with u! Try to find a stick on the way. Hiking shoes are suggested! Whole hike will take bout 2-3 hrs with few min stopes at falls! Don't forget to dive in the waterfalls. No sharks , I promise ! The views are just out of this world ! Enjoy

Final view look out is as good as it gets. Nice hike even if you're not a hiker.

Went on Dec 4, 2016. Trail was muddy but very manageable. View at the end was spectacular.

Very beautiful, wonderful views of the canyon. Mud was a bit slippery so be aware of that.
