The trail begins just north of "Mount Zion Church". It is also right across the street from a small shave-ice shack which I highly recommend before the hike. It remains flat throughout but has its challenges. The towering cliffs, beautiful fall and fun swimming hole make it well worth it!! This trail was closed after a landslide killed 8 and injured 50 people so entering comes with disclaimers: 1) Risk heavy fines if caught. 2) Take extreme caution after wet weather and heavy rain.. 3) Be wary of falling rocks and recently downed boulders and trees.

Loved this trail! Beautiful, sad it's illegal but also good to preserve it.

Highly illegal. Closed for safety. But so beautiful. Very spiritual. If you get the chance to experience this area, remember what happened here and respect the land and area. I will say I disliked all the tour helicopters flying over the falls.

I thought it was amazing! A little Erie because of what happened there but I'd definitely go again! Just the hike to get there was tropical looking and beautiful!

I hiked this trail about a month before 7 people perished there during a rockslide. Since then, it is closed to the public.

This trail is CLOSED since the late 90s due to the numerous deaths of hikers.
NOT an easy trail at all

This trail is closed. The penalties you wi receive from DLNR(Department of Land and Natural Resources) out way the thrill. See video. https://vimeo.com/119992399

Warning trail is closed and posted so you run the risk of getting fined but o went at 3pm and had no problems and definitely worth it. Beautiful waterfall and not a very difficult hike to get there. Beware of the narrow path towards the end and flash floods

Unfortunately this easy hike is closed. A group was killed in the 90s so they shut it down.

A very easy stroll towards the back of Kaliuwaa stream. The reward is clear - the beautiful Sacred Falls. The trail is closed, so be aware of that. Penalty for trespassing is stiff so be forewarned.
