Great trail with some nice views from the summit. However, the half the of the loop coming back was currently closed due to construction. Overall it was a great time. Moderate difficulty is accurate, however I would say it could bump to hard when it rains, as it did today for us.

the pillbox with the peace sign is further down past the first one. Just dont turn right into another trail and you will miss it.

beautiful scenery. I didn't expect the steps to be so steep but it evened out at points. such a great challenge to take on. next time we will have a carrier for our 2 year old.

The trail is initially very steep, but levels out toward the top. The pillbox we found had a nice view of the beach. I was disappointed that we couldn’t find the other pillbox with the peace sign on it. We came across a sign that said “private property”, so I think the other pillbox may have been back there somewhere.

Even though it is a shorter hike, make sure to bring plenty of water and proper footwear. I saw a few folks struggling up the trail in sandals, long pants, and what looked like not enough water.

Easy trail, but has a decent amount of gravel and rock. I expected to be closer to the falls in the end but it is still a spectacular overlook

NEW ROUTE! We are locals. DONT GO the normal way through where all the signs are, through the short bamboo forest and then into the valley clearing. The state has put up a nice new fence around the whole reservoir and they are actively working on it. Instead. Park in the parking area, go to the Right, where there is a locked fence double door. There is a whole in the left side of the fence. Go through there. Go Left down road, then Left again. Bamboo Forrest and mud.Once in clearing follow the brown signs with yellow arrows. Use your phones Google maps to see the different trail options. Remember, once you hear the Lulumahu stream just follow it up and cross everyonce in a while as needed. VERY MUDDY. Wear correct shoes! Bring clean clothes to change into after.

Fairly moderate with no real gradients. Very muddy at the moment but slippery rather than deep. Very peaceful and great when it’s hot out as it’s fairly covered. Pigs are damaging some of the trail and I saw a fairly large one at the 4 mike mark. Worth doing for a quick outing.

Did feel a bit adventures since we lost the easiest trail a couple of times and had to backtrack . My athletic son even continued up a steep mountain side and got to a point above the falls , instead of to the end of the falls. Quite a few people around though so you could find your way by following voices. Muddy, slippery, gorgeous scent of ginger, pretty bamboo. Stunning waterfall! Only wish it was better marked.

Nice pool to swim in

Great trail, though it’s longer than listed. My app said it was 5.6 miles for the loop. Starting at the lower parking lot helped.

This was for sure closer to 10 miles one way, beautiful trail with lots of tiny waterfalls and beautiful views.

This was a pretty cool hike. We did this with the little guys (7 & 4) in slippas with ease. The pool is cool but if it’s crowded just go a few more steps up the trail to the bridge and get in there. Not as deep but just as refreshing. The waterfall was worth the hike. Go early to ensure you have some time to yourself. It gets pretty crowded midday. Nice way to spend a Sunday with ohana!!

Awesome place and with a nice swimming area. Unfortunately I lost my knock off go pro there and am more concerned with losing all the great pictures I took than the camera itself. So if anyone finds it u are more than welcome to keep the camera I just want the memory card. (contour camera)

I did this hike on a rainy day during a weekday, I’m sure it’d be twice as amazing on a dry day. The hike itself is a great challenge. I did it solo, it gets challenging near the end but I met a couple of adventurers already at the top who helped me along the way. It was good challenge and I’d definitely do it again if I had more time.

I didn’t get to hike this. Permit denied because the trail is only open Saturday and Sunday. Only two hikes need 4wd permits as of now. Other one is on the west side of the island.

Great running trail!

beautiful after a bunch of rain. fun to hang out and cool off. very easy hike

amazing

its a very good hike especially for beginners. you can see the H3 freeway and the ridge mountain. it's beautiful

It’s not the most easy trail to follow. There are crazy amounts of split offs and fences to get around. It’s muddy too so go prepared. A bit too crowded for my liking but it’s a fun and beautiful trail.

An alternate way without going through security is starting the hike from Wailupe valley,and climb steeply till you hit the dirt road before the start of the steps.

My favorite workout spot!!

It is very easy to get lost here with all the joining trails and the downloaded maps take you through areas that are closed for construction so you are kind of on your own. This trail is tough to find but worth it. It is definitely very easy and is in no way moderately difficult. This is the best waterfall on Oahu nothing beats the scenery of manoa falls for its surroundings but the waterfall itself here is better and the hike is less crowded and touristy. Of you wanna run trails as a group my email is justindavidsands@gmail.com

Its a pretty basic short loop trail with a very small waterfall that kids like to jump in. The best waterfall on the island lulumalu falls is right next to it though so while the trail is certainly nice, based on Oahu standards it is pretty mediocre but if you are a tourist you will like it. Still there are much better trails. If you want to join up as a group on a real one my email is justindavidsands@gmail.com

I have hiked many trails in Hawaii and this view and trail is an all time favorite. The view I like even more then the super popular diamond head and koko head trails. You will hike all the way up the mountain where there is usually a big cloud of fog but if you go on a clear day the 360 view is just amazing. Its about 3 hours round trip if you take time to enjoy the views. When I first did the trail I was confused because the only way to get there is through a security gate in a private residential area. Turns out you need to go up to him tell him you are there for the trail, give your id and receive a one day pass. There is no other route to go to get there. It will get muddy but the path is wide enough such that if you position yourself properly you will likely just slip and get dirty as opposed to falling to your death. This is a must do trail here it should be full 5 stars.

Chill trail, good for running on dry days.

Very pretty but quite muddy!! The actual trail wasn’t usable due to construction when we went so we had to take another way around. It was easy to get lost and boy did we! Everything was so pretty and the hike was so nice we didn’t mind getting a little lost and dirty. Great hike in general!

a bit confusing, had to push through a dense bamboo forest, cross back and forth over the stream and climb over rocks.

The views aren’t super fantastic there but it’s a great nature outing nonetheless. The trail itself isn’t difficult it’s just pacing yourself to make sure you make it haha. Lots of species of plants (im a botanist so im biased) to ooh and aah at plus the trail is great for groups and dogs.
