Waimea Valley Trail is a 2 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Haleiwa, Hawaii that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible year-round.
We've been here 3 times in the past 3 weeks. I recommend going on a Thursday so you can enjoy the farmers market before or after. If you go late enough in the day you don't need to pay, otherwise it's $16 a person. It's a lot, but if you're a plant person it's worth so much more. Plants, labels, originations, botanical names, facts, and the prettiest trees and plants I've ever seen. I learned so much. Swimming is an option at the end in the waterfall area. Once again if you go later in the day there is no lifeguard, if you go during the day there is and they will charge you to swim.
Fun family trail, very mild and great waterfall at the top to enjoy with seating and an opportunity to swim at the base of the fall
This isn't going to be a solo hike through the woods, but it's a great way for everyone, no matter what ability, to enjoy the natural beauty the island has to offer. You do have to pay, but hopefully some of that money goes towards conservation efforts.
This is a paved road to this Waterfall has a lot of beautiful plants and trees on the way. But this is just a walk in the park. Extremely popular there are a lot of people on this trail.
extremely easy with a paved path perfect for smaller children and strollers
The walk worth it, beautiful trees and flowers.
FANTASTIC TRAIL! Good for the whole family. has tons of different paths to try and signs for the plants. At the end you can swim in the pool with the waterfall and if you don't want to walk back down you can pay for a ride down for $6 a person. I did the whole hike in flip flops and most without but I am a Marine who has been hiking for a couple years, the entire main trail is paved though
Nice little paved nature trail. I wouldn't consider this a "hike" and it's usually very crowded.
This is essentially a paved road through a botanical gardens that costs $16 terminating at the falls with a stand for life jackets for anyone who wishes to get in for a photo op. Just wish I'd been smart enough to read the reviews ahead of time. Not my cup of tea - I want a trail, a hike, not a manufactured (though very beautiful) stroll.
Very pleasant "hike". It's more of a nature trail leading directly to the falls, which is beautiful. It costs $16 for non-military, non-residents.
