This trail is longer than 1.9 miles round-trip. Turn around at the viewpoint with the log bench. The map extends a bit further beyond this but there is nothing to see after that viewpoint.

Running

I ran this loop (mostly), walking steeper and technically more challenging sections. I had downloaded the course map, for offline use ... very glad I’d done so, as without the map and GPS on my iPhone could not have completed this loop. As I continued the trail westward, after the Coconuts Lookout, I lost the trail (many fallen trees and debris) despite GPS. I then went up to the Coconuts Lookout and took a westward trail from there, which then rejoined the lower trail further westward. Even so, the GPS was necessary on this new trail segment. Conclusion: interesting and challenging loop trail. Do NOT do this loop without GPS capability on your device, and DO download a map for use offline (with the GPS on your mobile phone). Otherwise, you’ll either get lost or need to backtrack to Belvedere Lookout. Distance I noted on my Garmin: 9.21mi Time elapsed for this mostly trail run with backtracking required: 3hr 45min. The trail westward from the Coconuts Lookout needs to be cleared, and marked better.

Très belle randonnée, la cascade est magnifique! Il y a aussi les deux cascades de la Putoa, toujours au départ d'Afareaitu: https://www.tahiti-rando.fr/rando-moorea-cascades-putoa.php

Great hike with lovely swimming hole/waterfall. Bonus: collect a fruit basket to go on way down.

Easy most of the way but the last 10 percent was steep with not a lot of room for error. Covered basically the entire way.

Breathtaking waterfall at the end of trail. Fairly easy hiking. Bit slippery because it rained heavily yesterday. Watch out for stray dogs before the trailhead.

Fairly easy trail, really cool short hike through the jungle with a beautiful water fall at the end. You can drive up to the trail head in a car (first water crossing) but we had to park a ways down and hike up because we only had a small rental car that did not have a lot of ground clearance. If we didn’t have a gps leading the way i would have thought we were driving to through the locals neighborhood, there are not any signs leading to the trail head until you get there

The trail is inside a gated community now. Weeds and all kinds of plants have grown covering the trail.

Pretty easy trail, but slippery even though it wasn’t rainy. Swimming hole too shallow to swim but the waterfall is pretty sweet.

One of several falls in Tahiti Nui. This one is the easiest to get to by far. The road to the trail is a little congested with the housing in the area. Once at the trail, there is ample parking and some local vendors selling various items. Walking back to falls is quite nice and the cascade of several falls is really overwhelming. Enjoyed this easy and gorgeous waterfall trail in the Papenoo valley as many others traveling in the area. Note: Also called 3 cascades falls. Limited cell service due to mts. so no recorded route possible.

Really neat roadside grotte in SW Tahiti near Paea. Lots of nature to explore and enjoy. Also, local vendors are set-up nearby. Two caves do exist, but swimming within the caves is at your own risk as the depth and any safety concerns are unknown.

Quite a cultural antiquity in Tahiti. This historic area begins with an informational approach to the Marea and then offers a hike following the temple area which meanders back to a waterfall. Be respectful in the temple grounds area, then enjoy the trail path which is well maintained and clearly marked. The forest is thick at times, but trail is easily traversed. Rating this new trail as moderate since it includes the waterfall which has some bouldering aspects. If only the temple grounds were accomplished then it would be an easy trail.
