Beautiful. Quite easy for the most part, but get there early to beat the crowd.

Very Scenic hike! Took about an hour with lots of stops for pictures. Went at 8:20. Not much people yet.

Very touristy. Kid friendly. Rocks and roots can be slippery but it’s an easy hike.

Great beach walk but can be windy. Really wonderful at Sunrise and Sunset.

Crowded. However, it's cool once. It's fast and your in Hawaii.....

Headed up on a rainy day expecting mud and trail to be a little slippery.

Love the view at the top but it’s always over crowded, even very early in the morning. It’s a quick hike with a big reward.

8/18/2018-Definitely one of the muddier and more humid visits to this trail. We started around 0735 and crossed paths with 20 groups/solo hikers. There were a handful of large groups with kids in tow on our way out so it seems like the popular time to go hiking is around 0900. The waterfall was nice and the mud slowed us down quite a bit but well worth the exercise!

Decent easy hike with a lot of tourists

Definitely a chill hike, play in the mud on the way up and wash it off in the falls as you swim in some amazing pools!

Easy hike. Went around 8:30am on a Friday. Lots of people already. Spectacular views! Took us about an hour with stops for pictures. There is barely any shade so bring sunglasses, hats and water bottles!

Great trail. Great pool below falls with some good jumping into water from 10-50 ft elevations for daring. Muddy. This is not a trail for flip flops or tennis shoes, should really use hiking shoes....Dozens of blown out flip flops on trail. A nice 3 hr - 4 hr round trip with time at falls and pool. Very muddy ... not too buggy but you will get bit by a few mosquitos.

This hike has nice views along the way and multiple spots just off the trail where you can walk to/swim in the stream. It was moderately crowded but not too bad. The trail itself was quite slippery in some spots due to the mud. Overall it was a fun hike with a cool waterfall at the end! Plus, there is a trail head for another trail at the end of this one, literally next to the falls. This trail goes up another 1.3mi or so to the top of the ridge with a beautiful view, it was worth the extra time and effort up.

Gorgeous easy to do hike that is child friendly and paved. Much harder “off road” hike down to the tide pools but definitely worth it (climb straight down rocks)

Gorgeous waterfall/ pond to swim in. Muddy hike that was a little tough to follow at times. Shady. Not child friendly.

In the sun so bring water

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.

A well-maintained trail wanders back through the jungle to a nice waterfall. Area is often muddy, so wear good shoes. A light jacket or poncho is recommended due to regular showers.

very pretty trail. good time had by all.

love Hamama good for exercise, views, and cooling off after a nice workout

Prepare to walk through water more thanks once to get to the beautiful water fall. So worth it.

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.

Crowded

Nice pool to swim in

This was amazing. My don is 6 and it was his very first HIKE!!! It does get a bit muddy so wear comfortable gear you do not mind getting dirty. Trust me it can wash off. No jeans, no slides, n9 crocks and no sandals. It does have a lot of traffic through it but that means you can't get lost. The waterfall is beautiful. Wear sun screen and Bug spray very important.

A moderately easy trail with an awesome waterfall and swimming hole at the end.

They probably went via Po’opo’o Place or Kamahele St., the two alternate backways. They boarded up the Kamahele St. steps and posted signs telling hikers to go away.

Probably the best hike in Oahu in terms of difficulty, beautiful scenery, semi-challenging rock climbing sections, and then the viewpoint from the first peak. We made it to the second peak, but decided not to go all the way to the third peak due to the sketchiness of the ropes on the backside of the second peak. Nonetheless, it was simply beautiful from the top! Highly recommended! Hope the weather is in your favor!
