Absolutely loved this hike! Got a little bit from all the best trails: some pine forest miles, some jungle, some mud, some stairs, a nice ridge and a beautiful view! We started around 8:30am and it took us about 5 hours including the walk from and to the bus (30 min. each way) and a couple of breaks during the hike. We went after weeks with lots of rain but only the stairs-part was a bit muddy but nothing too bad. You start by zig-zagging up on the side of the mountain - a pretty descent walk. Then you get to a picnic table and from there it begins to get a little steeper. Though roots help you a lot of the way and once you start to get a view, you’ll find the stairs that will lead you to the top. It does have shade along the trail, but bring sunscreen and definitely water and mosquito deterrent. Photos on: @maleneroennest Instagram

I thought this was a cool hike. It’s just the steps up to a single peak but there can be some nice picture opportunities there. But to be honest, it’s probably the hardest hike I’ve done personally. Did the upward part in about 45min. The way back down is still around 35min if your being really careful like us. I’d say I was satisfied with the effort and payoff. BRING A LOT OF WATER!!!

Excellent easy, dry trail for most of the way. Hard rains last week caused a landslide that cut into the trail. A little hairy stepping down into the slide to cross but it only takes 1-2 steps with small roots to hold. Some mud.

I woke up early to get a head start on other hikers & it was totally worth it. The trail was quiet & the beach was secluded. I only hiked to the beach & back because I have other trails to explore. Idk that anything will beat the views that this trail has to offer!

Make sure you always have a plan and you come prepared. As we reached the trailhead we were greeted by fire department personnel and rescue/search helicopters flying overhead. A hiker has been missing since last night. I mentioned to the fire department folks that I had a tourniquet and a knife in my camelbak and that I’d keep a lookout. Apparently she only had a bottle of water and no phone, and her group somehow got separated from her and LEFT her. I’m sure more details will come out, but bottom line, be responsible and be prepared.

Highly recommend. I would call this easy if not for the very careful footing you must take because it is muddy and slippery for more than ~1/3 of your steps. But wear hiking boots and watch your step and you'll be fine. Take the small detour to the lookout spot halfway in. The views at the canyon lookout near the end are beautiful but also be sure to go past that to the two spots to see the waterfall. The end technically makes a loop but the trail gets more and more narrow and most people turn around at or just after the falls and we almost couldn't see the trail anymore so most people turn around to make it since there's not much to see after the two falls. Most of the trail is well shaded, just the canyon lookout was sunny but I got a little pink there since I'd sweated off my sunblock being a hot day. I didn't see any mosquitoes but did get 2 small bug bites which I noticed the next day. Swarms of fruit flies for a couple hundred feet, but only in a few spots and mostly at the beginning so don't be deterred by that. A wonderful hike. If you have a water filter, you can fill up at the falls.

This trail is along a very boring dirt road for the first ~mile. Instead, do the Waipo'o Falls via Pu'u Hinahina and Canyon Fallstrail, which joins up with this and is the same last half and same destination. I give this a low rating because the Waipoo is so close to this but a much better experience. Both were pretty muddy but just wear hiking boots and you'll be fine. The views at the canyon lookout near the end if beautiful and be sure to go past that to the two spots to see the waterfall. Well shaded trail other than the canyon lookout so we didnt need to reapply sunscreen. I didn't use my bugspray so got 2 bug bites which I noticed the next day. Swarms of fruit flies for a couple hundred feet in a few spots but a wonderful hike still. If you have a water filter, you can fill up at the falls.

Great hike. Incline is straight up. Lots of parking. Well traversed but also falling apart in places. Very slippery on the way down.

Muddy, a bit rocky in some parts. There are benches to rest at the areas where there are nice views. Beautiful area with plant of shade over the trail. Saw parts of an aeroplane wreckage. There were fruit-bearing trees.

Beautiful views at the top!! The water was so pretty. There was plenty of parking at the trailhead. Nice paved trail all the way to the top.

It’s not 6.7 to the waterfalls. It’s easily a few extra miles. Be prepared to scramble over rocks, cross a stream multiple times and get rather wet. Bring lots of water, sunscreen, bug repellent and very sturdy shoes

Great workout trail with elevation changes. Heart still pumping! Sidewalks mostly. Shade depending on time of day. Pretty views of Aiea. Will do this one again.
