A great trail located in the middle of town. The trail is heavily wooded so it is shaded the entire time. It is muddy and you’re walking uphill over a plethora of tree stumps. However there is good footing along the way. I would say this is an easy to medium hike at points. If you are in less than average physical condition, you may find the hike challenging. I go walking maybe four times a week on a zero incline and found this hike perfect for my physical condition. The hike provided moments of elevated heart rates that I loved. It’s slippery because the trail is muddy in spots on the way down so watch ur footing. I hiked in tennis shoes but noticed on this heavily trafficked trail many were wearing hiking boots and or carry a stick or ski poles for added assistance. I did see a dog on the trail and he was having a great time. I would say this trail is not small kid friendly because of the terrain - the parent may end up carrying them . Parking was empty when we arrived early Saturday @ 630am but when we were done the parking was completely full. About 15-20 spots. There are bathrooms at the trailhead and a water fountain and a place to scrub and wash ur shoes when ur done

A very big disappointment. Trash through out the trail, shopping cart with junk in the middle of the trail. Surrounding the pool of the water fall were men’s used underwear, match sticks , tampons and other nasty trash. Up on the cliff area there is a tent with a homeless person living there. On the other side is a homeless camp. As we left the area we were looking down the stream on the other side and some druggie guy started yelling .. what! Then started walking towards up in a threatening manner. This place is not worth the trouble.

Great trail that connects to a bunch of the Manoa Mess of trails. Currently with the rainfall it is slippery mud but not a mud pit. Just bring some water to rinse off. This trail has everything from an overlook to water crossings, to rocky surfaces to roots to awesome Banyan Trees. Good for dogs and older keiki or baby wearing.

Well used path, cemented in some parts. Could do a running stroller with bigger tires.

I did this trail alone and i found it very relaxing. You need to cross a stream in the beginning but it’s very minor. Definitely start out the trail by going right. Get the muddy part out of the way and then wash off in the waterfall!

Beautiful views. This trail I would say is more moderate than hard. Though rain and muddy conditions can make it slick. It is a very laid back and enjoyable trail. Cheers!

busy and easy... paved path all the way up

We did this trail today with our 3 and 5 year old kids. They did great although some parts were very muddy. The falls were on the left at the beginning of the trail when you walk towards the stream. Beautiful. The stream was a bit challenging to cross but mostly because of our kids and ensuring they didn’t fall or slip. We went straight ahead after the stream and did the loop, but I think it would have been better to do the loop starting to the right, right after the stream. A few reasons to start to the right: 1- the muddiest part is at the beginning and not at the end so less challenging if you are tired towards the end. Although my husband argues that we would have been muddy the whole loop if we had started there. 2- at one point there was a tree blocking the trail. It was confusing which direction we needed to go. We started going left but we followed the app and quickly figured out we were going off trail. There was a small path that went down to go around the tree. If you start the loop from the right, its more obvious where you need to go when you meet that tree. Overall we loved the trail. Beautiful trees. We only encountered a group of four women. It seemed like we had the whole trail to ourselves. Of note, we noted different spots with shattered glass on both sides of the road where people park. We assume cars were recently broken into... I wouldn’t leave any valuables in the car.

Great hike for families with young children. The trail is paved which makes it stroller friendly. Very popular trail which makes parking a pain but saw many cars parked on the shoulder along the road.

This trail is on private property and it is closed.

Great walk with the family and pet friendly. Paved path is wide and great to do if your other planned hikes are washed out by rain. Still a good uphill climb with great views. On the way down, the last lookout closest to the bottom has a small path not tracked by All Trails. It follows the remaining ridge line down to Pele’s Chair and was a lot of fun if you are looking for a little bit of adventure. It probably descents about 150 ft. To the shore level.

this hike was tough but it was do-able! the views the whole time are awesome and trail is always wide enough, npt dangerous. i highly recommend it

Trail was great but the loop on the right side runs into a dead end. Maybe if you are into scaling cliffs you can complete it to hike the other mountain top. We had to turn around at the bottom and climb the steep hill back. Pretty cool view at the end and not as treacherous as it looks from above. We saw four sea turtles swimming in a cove.

Did this trail with my wife, teenage son and nine year old daughter. Overall, it was a bit of a challenge for her with the muddy conditions but overall, a good challenge for non-hikers. Note we did wander off the trail twice due to overgrowth of the markings, but managed to find out way back. Would recommended and do again, for an hour long, shaded experience for novices.

This was about five miles round trip and took us 3 hours. I enjoyed the drop offs of the ridge. The views were spectacular! The first mile and a half is a steady and moderate incline, and then there are stairs for about the last mile. It was worth the effort for the payout--You can see views on both sides of Oahu, from Honolulu to Hawaii Kai to Kailua to Chinaman's hat. The trail would be much more difficult after rain. We went on a dry day and had no problem.
