with a rating of easy, I assumed it would be, well, easy. It isn't that it's treacherous but with the dirt it can be very slippery and dangerous. I saw many people turn around rather than risk it and I myself ended up sliding down in one spot. It was dry when we went and I would definitely NOT advise going when it's raining. Also, make sure to wear good footwear, flip flops could definitely be your downfall (literally) here. I would say this was a step up from easy as many people we passed wouldn't even attempt to go past the first stop.
This is a nice hike. That being said, it is a solid 4 miles, not 3.5 as the app says. Make sure to get there with enough sunlight left. It's going to take you at least an hour to get to the falls if you are stopping to occasionally take pics, then there is the hike back. Bamboo forest is cool but I would say that it doesn't compare to Manoa falls in Oahu. At the end of the trail is a large, very tall, waterfall which is a great site. Signs are posted not to go further but we did see an occasional person go and swim in the pool.
Be sure to bring water and stay hydrated. It is mostly up hill/up stairs for most of the way there. There are steps, steps, and then more steps.
Did this yesterday. The hike up took us an hour and 20 minutes because we stopped to look around and take photos. Coming back down was about 40 minutes. It's a very easy hike and worthwhile. The bamboo forest was a beautiful sight. You will get attacked by mosquitoes though!!
Incredible trail. The ride out there is a bit long (coming from Wailea), but is beautiful and an adventure in and of its own. Think Big Sur, Hawai'ian style. Plan on getting wet and seeing 30+ waterfalls. Be sure to leave as early in the morning as possible to avoid crowds.
