Directions from Honolulu: From H-1, exit at the Pearl City/Waimalu exit. Turn right on Moanalua Road at the end of the ramp. As Moanalua Road ends, turn right on Waimano Home Road. Continue on Waimano Home road until you reach a guard shack with a parking area on the left. Park here - the trails begin at the end of the chain link fence.
Super wet and slippery year round. Running shoes are a mistake. Cleats would be ideal. Beautiful all around.
Totally enjoyed it. The reward is the waterfalls at the end. Drink plenty of water
Love this hike. It was wetter this year made going down hill a little more tricky but not too bad. Waterfall was fantastic due to all the recent rain.
Loved it. Great waterfall to hangout at at the end of the trail.
My dog loves this place
Fun! Good challenging hike IF you're out of shape like we were LOL! Not too hard and a great treat with the waterfalls/swimming hole at the turn around point! Would recommend if the water is there (go on a nice day after rains... We had big rains a few days earlier). If the water is not there it would be a nice hike but I personally would look for a different hike with water of some form... But that's just me ✿◠‿◠
Loved it. Go on a day after it rains and the waterfall will be flowing! Only downside is that the trail will be a bit wet.
It's a light hike out and a slight climb back, but so worth it. Ropes to swing on and great view
The haik was easy at the beginning. At the end a lidl bit difficult.
To pool was awesome.
