Fun quick hike. Like the name says, you cross the creek and boulder hop quite a bit. Nothing difficult as it hadn’t rained in a while. When the creek forks, go left to the waterfall. The rope to the 2nd waterfall was too high up to grab.

Steep in the beginning and steep at the end, but nice for the majority in the middle. make sure to have some legitimate shoes, as it can get muddy and slippery in some spots. As others have said, to find the entrance, go up to the hut and look for the sign that says not to enter. The trail is behind it. Just ignore the sign and hop the fence, it's okay.

read ahead or get an audio tour. the road is narrow but very well maintained. yes there are some lane bridges but if you can read the signs and follow directions, this road is safer than some commute to work. many stops along the way for activity so do your research. definitely do the full loop rather than turning back at Hana. the south end is beautiful too though the road is less maintained and harder to drive. oh and if you can't handle the speed or don't have the skills to tackle this, turn around. don't put yourself and others at risk. know your limits. If you're being tail gated, pull over ASAP. there's usually a spot to pull over every mile or so. don't piss off the local.

constant downhill on the way out. relatively steep. oh and the sliding sand is slippery so bring good shoes and poles. great views though not much change after the first 2 or so miles. going straight up on the way back sucks when the sun is beating down and you slide half a step back for every step forward. bring extra water.

as others said, it's closed and illegal to hike this trail. that said, it's beautiful to look down the cinder cone and all the glorious colors on a sunny day. be careful because of typically high gusty winds could easily knock hiker over into the crater.

very easy trail. more like a walk through a garden. very nice swimming pools built by locals using rocks to block parts of the streams. go for the swim.

easy walk for trail with some concrete sections. overlook the coast line. meh view but since it's so easy, I give it 3 stars to compensate.

Nice paved trail for a beach run, it’s a bit overcrowded.

Nice pretty mostly paved trail for a beach run. Very well maintained grounds around the path.

Challenging only in that it is steep. We started this hike around 3 pm and it was lovely. Plenty of shade. Reviews that say no shade must be from folks who parked at the lower parking lot. It is about 3/4 miles from lower lot to trail head and all exposed. But trail itself has plenty of shade. Park at the upper lot! All Trails a bit inaccurate: distance RT was 5 miles on my Fitbit, not 4 miles. Also, elevation did not have a dip at the end as shown in AllTrails. Trail ends in a lovely 360 view. Your reward after steep climb is awesome views and much easier walking on the way down. Waterfall: there is a bench about a mile in from which you can see a waterfall in the distance. The hike does not go to a waterfall. If you can avoid, do not approach from the west. The road is VERY narrow and winding. We had trouble at one point: too narrow for cars to pass in both directions.

An easy forest trail, perfect to cool down on a hot day!

Great hike! Try and get all the way to the end assuming weather and rain are not an issue. Its not a scramble at the end despite the comments I've read - just a bit steep and poles would be helpful. At the top is a 360 view and grassy. I should have brought a lunch. The trail also goes further than whats recorded here but I didn't get that far.

Awesome “secret” trail behind the rail of the parks scenic viewpoint. There is a short opening for a view on the right early in the trail for those not wanting to go the whole way. The trail was slick in spots despite it being a dry day and very narrow bordering claustrophobic in the more forested places. There were a lot of bugs in areas that trees had dropped fruit onto the trail but they didn’t bite us. The last bit before the top is the steepest climb but worth it for the Jurassic park like views.

The best and most rewarding hike on our trip to Hawaii. The path was very well marked and maintained. The huge waterfall at the top was spectacular scenery to take a break and cool off for a bit. The out and back is doable in about 2 hours if you make good pace. Doing this trail will add to an already long day of doing road to Hana but it was well worth it and our favorite part of the day.

only did about 1.2 miles in and back. clouds came in and couldnt see, then cleared again as fast as they came in. Beautiful.

Parking for the actual trail is almost non-existent. We tried to park roughly 3/4 mi away, but couldn’t safely get to the trail head due to risk of falling rocks and unstable ground

The hike is short and easy. It has 3 beautiful waterfalls worth coming to see. Great for taking pictures. I would highly recommend checking this hike out.

Muddy(you know cause it’s a tropical island). Nothing more than a medium difficulty hike, great view if the clouds clear. But still really Great Hike to do and the crowds are minimal by Maui standards. Go early to avoid heavy clouds, and spot some awesome helicopter action.

get there early so you can park in the upper parking lot. Beautiful views all the way up. View of double waterfall at first bench to the right. Little muddy in places. Great hike.
