Beautiful walk to the falls. It's $16 for adults to enter and it's a very easy walk on paved path to falls.

Easy hike. Beautiful views

Very short trail. You have to pay to park here and the trail is always busy. At sunrise there are nice views

Very short trail. Paved the whole way so it’s good for strollers and/or people who need easy hikes with good footing. There’s whale watching spots and ocean lookouts.

Towards the top of the trail there’s an unmarked trail down to tidepools-but be careful it can be dangerous

Fun trail to run. It can be pretty crowded and parking can be hard to find due to the proximity of the beach. The trail itself has multiple ways to the top so every time can be different. A few small places to rock climb. At the top there is a beautiful view of the beach and at sunrise it’s indescribable!

Very busy trail. I’ve done this trail a dozen times and have never seen it empty.

Trail is muddy so bring towels or extra shoes to protect your car

The falls were a bit lackluster but the trail was spectacular. Flowers, trees, and gardens on both sides.

Hiked today 4/22 at 9am. Street parking was easy and safe. Expect mud and to get your shoes and shorts muddy. The trail comes to a y as your start to decent towards the water. If you go right, You'll end up downstream and will have to hike up 1/4 mile to the falls. We jumped off the lower pool cliff into a 10ft pool. Upper falls was beautiful! We joined two other parties during the hike and had fun. Mahalo.

Beautiful views at the top and the military history is neat. Had a guy feint from heat at the top who had to be flown out by helicopter. Not a long hike but stay hydrated with the heat and stairs.

This trail should be rated moderate. It is wet and rocky the whole way. The falls are pretty but not too much to see on the way to them. Extremely crowded.

Beautiful views of the ocean as you like . Cool lighthouse and view at the top. fairly crowded but that is typical of most trails in Oahu.

Pretty easy but fun. Nice view and beautiful beach for sigh seeing

Hiked yesterday. Perfect family friendly trail for hikers of nearly all levels. Brought two babies in front pack. Slight hill to get the cardio going but nothing too difficult or very long. Beautiful mountain and forest views. The waterfall was raging and beautiful. We stopped and took photos and it only took us about 2 hours. Great way to acclimate to the Hawaiian heat and temperatures without getting overtired or too hot.

Nice waterfall! Easy hike.

easy hike with very clear paths. don't wear thongs,flip-flops

I did this when I first got here. There’s better views out there that involve an actual hike

Went during a rainy week, trail was pretty muddy so it slowed us down. Still had a great time.

Easy hike. Lots of birds singing. Nice waterfall at the top. My two year old grand daughter basically walked the entire route.

The trail was muddy but we went the day after a good rain.. I thought it made it a lot more fun! You’ll want to pack swim wear, it also has a rope to swing off and jump in at the falls! Nice hike in, have a nice picnic and head out with plenty of day light. Will definitely do it again on my next visit to the island.

I do this hike weekly. Nice and easy a lot of people usually stop at the pillboxes but the hike continues on I say stop enjoy the view get pictures and then continue on.

Monk seal. Birds. Epic beauty. Awesome ocean. Nuff said. Do it!

Great to take family and friends visiting on!

Busy, but awesome views!

Nice easy hike. We enjoyed it. My 6 and 3 year old did very good and liked the hike.

Awesome, very unique hike! If bringing kids or pets, it would be much advised to wait until the weather has been dry for at least a few days. We did it the day after a small rain storm, but after about a week of a swell. The river was extremely high! There were actual rapids, making the crossing fairly difficult for adults. My son, aged 3, had to be carried across and the water reached to my stomach and was very fast moving. It was absolutely worth it, though!
With the extra high waters, it was hard in two spots to find the path. The map had a hard time pinpointing my location, so it was a very loose guide.
We LOVED it! Definitely recommend

Watch out for broken glass! the start is nice and easy but there is a lot of broken glass, so watch you fur babies. Definitely in the harder side of moderate but I really enjoyed it!

Very muddy when we went, so it felt pretty dangerous and scary at times. But so worth it once you make it to the waterfall and swim in the water!! Easier coming back than going down. 100% recommend, would wear hiking shoes and bring bathing suit!

Easy walk, but usually very crowded, which isn't fun IMHO. The views are pretty, but doesn't make it worth freaking with the amount of people.

Pretty views, and great whale sighting during the season. Definitely a walk as the path is well paved (moms with strollers jog this all the time). Great for anyone that needs an even surface.

Very beautiful hike. They did update the gate outside the Pali lookout, but still somewhat easy to sneak through the sides on the gate.
