If I could rate it higher than 5 stars I would. Must do if you are on Kauai.

A must do on the road to Hana!

One of the most beautiful and rewarding hikes of my life. I can't begin to say enough about the beauty of Na Pali. I did this trail in 2 days, would have stayed longer if there had not been bad weather. Arrive before dawn or get a ride, otherwise it will be hard to find parking.

One of the most amazing experiences of my life! Walking around the lush Maui forest in the rain through a massive Banyan tree, waterfalls, a bamboo forest that sounded like music az it swayed in the wind and rain, all kinds of Eucalyptus, including Rainbow Gum, which is my favorite.

There are steep areas, wet and slippery areas, and lots of mud so come prepared. Many areas are not accessible.

I’ve done this hike in 2014 and 2016. It goes through a cool bamboo forest and leads to a final waterfall. It is usually moderately crowded. The drive on the Road to Hana is half the fun, but I’d say don’t miss the cool side hikes. This is one I’d plan on doing bc it’s Haleakala National Park at the end of the road as a last stop before where most people turn back with their rental cars.

Love this trail! Hiked to the falls with my grandson on my back. We both really enjoyed the trek. Diverse terrain, scenic views, and bamboo forests.

Lots of great scenery and not too strenuous. Bamboo forest section is awesome. Will likely want water shoes for the last bit to get to the base of the falls

My wife and I were only able to get to the bamboo forest before time constraints made us turn back around. Definitely worth it up to that point though! A beautiful waterfall with an even better one at the end (as seen in pictures) and the bamboo forest is like another world! Really cool looking tree in between the first waterfall and bamboo, like something from a fantasy movie!

Absolutely one of the best hikes on Maui. You can go to the base of a 400 foot waterfall after walking through a bamboo forest. Just difficult and long enough to make it interesting, but not too taxing. Don’t miss doing it if you visit Maui.

I did this trail last year. It was cool and the rangers definitely push people towards this trail. The one across the street is far cooler. Both are closed, apparently, due to recent volcano activity.

Great trail, good for kids, absolutely beautiful! Wish you could go closer to waterfall at the end, but still a great view. Super hot and humid, bring plenty of water. Bamboo forest was very cool too. Gorgeous area.

I loved this trail. I think the first ten minutes is the most challenging. If you count from car to actual waterfall ... even thought you are not supposed to go past the sign. it’s closer to four miles round trip. Most likely you will get a little mud and depending on the rain forecast you will have to go through two to four shallow streams. Your feet will get wet. I did this with my three year old 36 pound toddler on my back. It was a great beautiful trail. Don’t forget the bug spray! Mosquitos the entire trip.

This is not a hike but it is a pretty Falls. You cannot get down to the actual water. There are rails to prevent that.

This is a great option to do before you head to the airport. It’s not very long and views are beautiful. However if you’re looking for a hike, this is not a hike you can do it in 15 minutes and it’s not strenuous at all

Great hike, bamboo forest is amazing and waterfall is amazing. Give yourself about an hour and a half to two hours. Make sure you go all the way to the end to see the waterfall. And bring a Camera. Accurately rated as moderate, not too strenuous. Loved it.

Okay falls, no hiking allowed

totally worth it! start in the morning , get there early

Super easy and short walk. The falls were closed when I went, but the loop is a nice way to get your heart rate up and blood pumping.

Awesome little trail. Bamboo forest is worth the trip alone.

The initial loop is peaceful and easy. The trail to the springs is an unexpected beauty. If the weather is at all wet I can’t imagine trying to navigate the steep cut albeit gorgeous switchbacks.

A nice quick walk with incredible views before we left for the airport. Actually the drive to the park is very scenic as well.

Every stream valley and every ridge has it's own personality and the more your hike this trail, the better you are getting to know an old friend. Sure you will go through your ups and downs together, but you know that in the end that land will always be there and will always provide you with what you need. Whether that is the abundance of mountain apples at Mile 4, the small campsite surrounded by mango trees after the hot and dry Mile 7, the small stream dotted with elephant ears at Mile 9, or the occasional egg fruit in Kalalau Valley. The 'aina just keeps giving.

Very short and easy! Mountain views are great!

Easy accessible and beautiful surroundings. Amazing bamboo forrest followed by an even more amazing waterfall!

No a hike, just a parking lot with a waterfall.

Not much of a hike but an absolutely amazing waterfall! Unfortunately your not able to get very close to it but definitely worth checking out.if your spending any time on the big island.

Loop is quick and easy. Side trail down to the springs and small caves is worth the hike.
