This trail is acctually fairly popular. Its a well maintained paved trail that leads through a recreated Hawaiian village and some old Hawaiian ruins. Its nifty if your into hikes that have historical signigfigance. Their is a large waterfall at the end and used to have a show at the end. Sooooo.... if your into the short walk and show bit its fairly interesting. As far as scenic quality i'd have to say I was disappointed. Only the waterfall was really beautiful. The ruins were interesting, but not what I would call beautiful. The show just made it a tourist trap. But then I was young at the time so maybe I don't remember very well, or I might have caught it on an off day....
