This is NOT a super easy hike - wear good shoes and be ready for an adventure. The beautiful waterfall at the end makes it worth it!

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!

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.

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.

Very muddy but worth the view at the end.

Beautiful trail! Very muddy start and rocky finish but follow the stream and it's pretty easy. Entrance I took was kinda hidden and not much parking. Great trail for hot days since it's walking under a great tree line and ending at a gorgeous waterfall with a little swimming hole. Not too good for smaller children. I suggest ages 4+ since there's a lot of going over and under fallen trees.
