Paved all the way. Easy walk or wheelchair accessible making this great for all ages. There is an entrance fee, but the gardens and falls make it well worth it in my opinion.

This was a beautiful hike, although driving to the trailhead felt like there was no way it could be the right spot - total neighborhood. In addition to the steep climbs and descents, there were some challenging spots to navigate, but I would totally recommend this hike to anyone who wants the Hawaiian-hike-to-a-waterfall experience. The water was refreshing and beautiful!

Awesome hike! Beautiful waterfall at the end and not a super easy hike - especially if it's muddy like it was when we went. Bring bug spray and maybe a snack to enjoy at the waterfall.
One tip- follow the pieces of plastic tied to trees - pink or white! They help you stay on the trail!

To hard for children under 10. Not as nice as most of the hikes we have been on. I would not do this one again because the other ones I have done are better.

Hiked this today midday with two families.
4-adults
7-kids (9, 7, 6, 5, 3, 1 and 1 babies were mostly carried)
We are active hiking families, we and the kids rated the hike as moderate hike. Our 5 y/o boy said it was easy but he is a rock climbing lover. Our 3 year old did this mostly by herself but needed to be lifted or helped a few times. She also did a 4 miler this morning with me so if she can do it...
