Fun trail to get a nice view of a wasteland-like crater. Be aware of the 4000 ft elevation, it may mess with your cardio. Lots of designated scenic photo stations clearly labeled for tourists. Do yourself a favor and cross the street when you get back to take a look at some neat lava tube tunnels.

We actually started at the southernmost point by mistake, however on the way we found some beautiful light green sand in some areas. This area is pretty sunny and dry so come prepared. The beach itself is a pretty neat nook of the big island but i was disappointed by the dark green sand (almost looks like mud). Although it gets rocky at some parts it is fairly easy with no climbing required. Definitely do this hike if able and visiting.

Didn't make it all the way up to the crater as I got a late start but the waterfalls were awesome. The first one is just off to the right of the trail and you can swim in it, although it's not that deep. The second water fall is also amazing and the trail climbs up next to it. The trail isn't that well marked initially as you cross back and forth across the stream but once you're past that you pretty much follow the metal water lines.

The map location is not correct. The maps location is at Keauhou Bay not Magic Sands. And there is not a hiking trail.

I did this trail in early February. It had not rained in a few days which was perfect! If you can, try to go when it hasn't rained, this will make crossing the creek easier. The trail is very clear until you hit the beach and have to head inland towards the falls. You will pass over the creek several times. The trail is sometimes unclear, but looks for the pink or yellow tags. As long as you're close to the creek, you're close to the trail. The falls are fabulous. But for me, the views of the NaPali Coast for the first couple miles are the best. I was on the trail by 5:45-6ish, in the dark, and I was the first on the trail. I knew this because of the many spider webs I walked right into. Watching the sunrise on the NaPali Coast was a truly spiritual experience. Bring clothes you don't mind getting dirty! I wore hiking boots. My friend wore Chacos. Both work well.

this hike is no joke. and I'm talking the notches, not the puka. the notches in the rain and wind gust are really sketchy. the rope system needs a serious upgrade. I've never been the type to shy away from a challenge but due to the conditions and lack of any climbing equipment I stopped after the second notch. I always hike alone so that had alot to do with me calling it quits unfortunately. don't go alone unless u have some additional rope and maybe gloves as well. rocks can be very slippery in the rain, and yes many people have died. this trail should not be taken lightly due to you needing some skill and equipment to complete the hike to the chimney. good luck to all that attempt. I'll try again soon. bring a friend.

I enjoyed this trail for the first time on a beautiful Saturday morning! There is an area in the river to take a dip in about 15-20 minutes into the hike if walking leisurely. There are a couple steep areas on the way to the falls but definitely doable. Family friendly hike, I recommend taking visitors here for a memorable hike complete with a refreshing waterfall and photo opportunity at the end.

It's very muddy but had a great time. Got rained on the entire time. There were ribbons on the trails but they were miss leading. We never made it to the falls.

AMAZING. my friend and I did this trail this morning..we parked in the neighborhood about a block away from the gated fence.we arrived at about 4am and climbed through the barbed wire hole in the fence all the way to the right (you have to climb the small muddy hill) once we got over the fence we walked down the paved road until we reached the fork in the road where they're was a red sign to the left and entered the jungle we kept going straight for about 10-15 minutes in the mud/bamboo trail. after we got out of the woods we walked up and a security guard drove passed us and didn't even acknowledge us. there was a second security guard in front of the trail. as we were walking up he ironically went into the porter potty and that's when we ran up the stairs and made it up to heaven. don't leave Hawaii without conquering this hike!

Not an overly long hike, but very steep. Great leg workout! Make sure you take water and wear good shoes. I did this in the middle of the day which was very hot, early morning would be better. Magnificent views from the top, definitely worth the hike.
