This was quite possibly the worst trail I have ever done! A complete waste of my day trying to navigate the trail. Aside from the ghetto gate we had to enter on the other side of a major highway. And the pink trail markers that seemed to be just every where as if trying to confuse hikers in the worst way. It was a mosquito nightmare and just the worst hike ever! Don't waste your time .
This was a great hike to attempt! Go early so you have lots of time. We went too late and only found 2 because we went the wrong way for #3, and it got too late. If you do not go through the tunnel, the hike around it opens you up to an incredible point of surrounding beauty. That was my favorite part of this hike! We need to go back and find all of them!
We climbed passed #7 and found all 10. Be careful, very slippery!
I wouldn't rate this as an easy hike. Park at the gravel lot off Pali Hwy. at the same entrance as Lulumahu Falls Cross it to the other side (be careful upon returning from our hike a cop greeted us in the lot and gave us a stern warning for trespassing and jay walking with a fine of $165.) once across go through the gate. It is really easy to get lost here. Go straight in and find the largest trail more to your left with pink ribbons and also wide yellow duct tape. There are many trails used and marked by hunters. Once you find this trail stay on it. After an hour you will come to the tunnel. You can go through the tunnel (following pink ties) but bring a flashlight and be prepared to sink into the mud and water. You can also go over by following the large yellow tape. Our group split and did both on the way out. After emerging you can follow this trail to the 7-10 "ish" falls depending on water flow. Be prepared to climb steep inclines with falling rock. At several places there are ropes to help with this. It took us 5 hours to complete this hike with minimum stopping. Not the best falls but very remote and quiet. We didn't see a single person.
It is a great hike, but you can easily get lost since many hunters have set up pink ribbons everywhere so there is no actual trail marker. Once you know the way it's easy. There are 7 waterfalls, #2 being the greatest of them all. A good hike I would consider intermediate due to the high volume of slippery rocks, thin trails, and a bit of small climbing. Wear good shoes with traction, you will get very wet, spikes are very helpful
