There are two waterfalls if you do the loop down in the jungle, make sure to follow the white trail flags.

Nice hike. I would rate the middle third of the hike as hard, due to the need to use the installed ropes to go up and down the hills near the two waterfalls. Very slippery when the ground is wet.

I lived here for almost three years 12 yrs ago and hiked Fonte dam often. I never knew about this hike right next door until I came back to visit for my third time since leaving the island. It was amazing! A bit challenging in places but so doable. It was barely buggy at all and the trails were dry. This would be a much harder hike when the trails are wet because they are ALL clay. If you do the loop Clockwise, the exit back up to the ridge is right after the second waterfall. But if you go early enough and you’re feeling really froggy, you can skip that exit and go upriver two more miles to see a third waterfall and exit up there. We were running out of daylight so we skipped that modification. Another time. Next time we will go much earlier and spend the day at the swimming hole. So so beautiful. For reference, my husband and I are 46 and 47 yrs old, and I consider myself pretty out of shape. He mountain bikes. I get winded easily. I get migraines easily. I’m about 5’8” and 200 relatively lean lbs and he’s 6’3” and 230 or so. Did this hike on a cool windy day with no problem. The ridge is quite sunny and long, so sunscreen or long sleeves is recommended. Also bring a snorkel mask for the pools. Lots of fish. And bring plenty of water. And have fun!

Definitely bring bug spray specifically for when down by the falls and traveling along the river. View of the falls and the follow on swim hole is majestic. Ropes along the path absolutely reduces the difficulty this hike would otherwise be. Hiking shoes recommended for slippery and muddy area along, down and up from the falls. Long pants highly recommended due to overgrown grass on path. Follow the trail to the left to do the loop; best route that way in my opinion. Definitely recommended, hike is transition well from easy to moderate with the same escalation through the different terrain travelled. Don’t forget your GoPro.

Great hike from start to finish, one of my favorite hikes on Guam. Beautiful scenery especially once you start hiking down the ravine into the river leading to the falls.

We ended up getting lost after the waterfall. We were able to find our way out after having to make our own trail and meet up with the original trail. Would definitely do it again and go counterclockwise around the loop rather than clockwise. Overall, the hike was great.

Great trail! A little muddy and very slippery in some places but we'll marked and challenging once you start descending to the falls. Bring bug spray if you plan on spending any time down by the falls.

This is was the 1st hike went on when we moved to Guam. This hike starts out in the open (so where sunscreen), then there is a pretty good drop right into the jungle. There were ropes (wear gloves) for assistance on getting down the steep parts of the hike.

recording stopped early for some reason. Recommend starting early as there is no shade until you get down in the "jungle". Makes for a hot trip back. I went counterclockwise around the loop. There was a bunch of flags that led further up the creek by the swimming hole. I eventually turned around as I wasn't sure how far they went. Really good climb down and back. Climb by the big waterfall is obviously more intense. Bring lots of water!! I did hear gunshots over the hill in the distance. sounded like target practice.

Great trail. Have patience with the beginning as it follows a vehicle off road trail. It then drops into the heavy trees fast with a heavy downhill. Ropes are there to help. Beautiful hidden area. Trail is marked out well up to the second waterfall. Then it gets lost. If someone knows the path could you please help mark it with new flags? I had to turn back and not complete the loop. Dogs are great for the first half but would really struggle on the loop in the tree line
