New to hiking, it was a short smile hike to the Jack ass ginger pool. Walked the loop on the way back. Nice scenery and shade.

This trail was alright. Super short but it connects up with the really cool jackass ginger swimming hole. If that's your thing.

I dont get this hike. Poor signage. I entered off the old Pali Rd where it says Judd trail. Took some obvious trails, crossed rocks & streams a few time, even found the Jackass pool thing, I think. I seen apts on that side. But these trails didnt seem to really take me anywhere far out. How did that one person get a view of Honolulu?? Where do you get 9.7 miles outa this?

Beautiful falls at the beginning. Cross over the river was a surprise! Rock hopping is a little scary but rewarding when you make it across we also took the off shoot trail (can't remember the name) which was challenging and rewarding with a nice view of Honolulu, the valley and ocean.

This is a super quick little loop, with a waterfall, well a very little waterfall. Park on the right, on the Nu'uanu Pali Road… You'll see the sign. Walk down and cross the creek, and take the loop counterclockwise. this trail also connects to the Nu'uanu Trail, and adjoining trail system.
