It’s starts beautiful as there are amazing views of the rainforest and it’s fauna, but as the trail continues it gets tight with far too many people on this trail and the views never live up to the opening scene. We found our family standing and waiting 8-10 minutes due to traffic on the trail, yikes. I find the trails of Lyon Arboretum far more rewarding just above Manoa falls trailhead.

Left for the trail at about 11 AM right after it rained, then had to pay 5 dollars upfront to enter the trailhead and there was still plenty of parking space available. Because it had just recently rained there was lots of mud which made the rocks we were climbing on slippery. The hike itself was about an hour of steady hiking with a beautiful waterfall at the end.

Nice hike but way too many people on small trail.

Stay left! We veered off to the right after the creek and ended up in some deep bamboo. Headed back and found the trail easily. It was an easy hike but very muddy. Wear the right shoes. We saw all three waterfalls. Very beautiful and worth your time. Saw Glen from the Walking Dead hiking there!!!

Enjoyable, Easy, and worth it at the end!

Amazing views from this trail. It’s more of a walk and not really a hike. We went counterclockwise like some other reviews stated and thought the views were amazing. We had kids 9 & 11 with us and did this very easily. Even very young kids,

way to many people!!!

Pretty easy hike with a waterfall at the end as a reward. Went early before the lot attendant arrived, but we still had to pay upon leaving. Go early as the parking lot was full by 9am.

Beautiful and so worth it. The most crowded times is early morning/noon, later on gets a bit better. Fun for everyone, would suggest to wear safe shoes since it’s gets muddy/slippery places. For a tourists, I would suggest this waterfall as a must to visit what doesn’t take a lot of effort but are so beautiful.

Wear shoes with good traction! I wore hiking boots and my kids had water socks. Both worked fine for the slippery trail. Gorgeous hike. We started at 6pm and were the only ones there.

Good easy hike!

This is a very crowded trail is the only reason I'm giving 3 stars instead of 5. If it wasn't so crowded, I would give 5. If it has been raining, be prepared to get your shoes muddy.

Good easy trail for all ages. Took our 3 year old (have to carry her most of the way as she nodded off) and our 8 year old no problem.
A bit muddy when rain, especially if you go up to the trail on the left having reached the water fall. Beautiful bamboo lined trail from this part.

Nice short hike.... crowded....

Nice short hike with a great waterfall at the end. Regular workout shoes were sufficient.

Beautiful. Very slippery when it is raining so be careful.

Easy loop trail. Do it counterclockwise for better views.

It was such an enjoyable hike. Not hard at all and the sights along the way were amazing. It was a bit crowded but manageable. The only thing was how muddy the trail was. Not sure if it had recently rained, but some parts were kind of slippery.

Parking is very limited. Either there’s a spot or you can make one! Lol First off, bring your own rope! The first five minutes of this trail has a good amount of branches, etc. to grab onto, but as for the rest of it, there is slim to none (and you are climbing basically straight up) If you plan on going anywhere afterward bring wipes, towels, etc. you will be dusty/muddy depending on the weather.

It’s a good fun family hike, just kinda disappointing on the fact that it’s crowded. And once we got to the falls it was just overcrowded. However we started at 9ish got done around 10. Maybe that’s just the peak times?

What a vacation without hike . we tried this hike with stunning views. it's kind a hard one on the way up and down . But if you reach top of the trail it's just WOW even wether wosnt that perfect and it was raining. it's just perfect . not recommended for people who scare of heights

Despite the easy rating on this, it is not easy for those just looking for a stroll. The first obstacle you come to is having to wade across the creek. Just after rain, or the rainy season, this creek can be swift. Prepare to get wet and muddy on this hike. For any avid hiker, this will be a stroll; however, there are slick rocks, steep rope/ladder climbs, and uneven ground. But the payoff at the end is spectacular.

Pretty easy hike. The waterfall is roped off but people still swim. That's great if you plan to swim. Inconvenient if you want to take pictures of the falls. I saw people on the trail in a cast boot and one on crutches. This hike is NOT appropriate for anyone who can't climb lots of stairs.

Awesome hike. It does get muddy and some areas are slippery. Also, it is extremely crowded. I would recommend getting there as early as you can. There is a $5 parking charge so bring cash.

We enjoyed our hike! The trees, plants and water surrounding the area was amazing. Waterfall was beautiful in a scenic area. Heavy traffic and it was pretty muddy, at the end in the parking lot there are hoses to rinse shoes in needed.

Definitely the most beautiful hike I have done. It wasn’t too crowded when we went on a Wednesday afternoon. A little bit strenuous going up but really worth it for the falls at the end.

Super muddy when we went (mid-June) and the waterfall at the end was beautiful but extremely crowded. A nice afternoon hike but I’d try during an off-peak time to really enjoy it without the crowd!

A nice perk was that it’s dog friendly. We brought our sweet girl a 18 pound Yorkie/Silky mix and she was able to handle it.
