Did the trail 4 days ago. Great views along the trail. muddy in some areas. Avoid after the rain- looks like it wold be very slippery and dangerous. Trekking poles or a walking stick would be a great idea for navigating the muddy areas. We stopped at the picnic tables.

Great hike! We were there the next day after the rain and it was quite muddy. Otherwise it was amazing.

It’s a short hike but with all that mud and roots, feels like much more! Fun challenge, even when unprepared. The bath at the bottom is worth the struggle of getting there. DEFINITELY recommend grabbing a walking stick. Little known secret, there is a spot adjacent to the entrance of the trail up top that has ropes tied to trees that you can rappel down the side of the mountain in about half the time. There is a sign saying not to use that route but... that’s up to you. Overall a fun adventure- just be prepared to get dirty!

Such a fun hike. Challenging, but not so much that you’re dead after. Definitely wear shoes with good traction- teva’s style or actual boots. Best if followed up with happy hour at Lava Lava Beach Club!

trail closed until summer 2019

Was on the easy side of moderate rained about 1/2 of the hike can be slippery in spots so be prepared to get muddy

beautiful trail with some parts to get your heart pumping haha.

We did this hike with a toddler in a backpack.

We did not have 4WD so had to walk along the muddy road to get to the trail head. No biggie... just make sure to allow for time.

A good portion of the trail is covered. Quite open and very hot closer to the top.

Great views and some cool little spots for the nugget to explore.

Got caught in heavy rain on the way back on the road. I imagine parts of this trail would be very slick when wet.

We did this hike with a toddler in tow (in a backpack). We managed to get our rental car part way along the gravel, muddy road. We walked the rest of the road to a little beach. (A great spot for a snack and to play in the water - which we did on the way back).

The road was very wet and muddy. Be prepared to get your shoes wet!

We continued from the beach to the rock quarry and to Mokolea point.

There were lots of really cool things for the baby to see along the way. It did get a little sketchy out along the rocks but worth it. I’m not too sure how far out we hiked ... but we were not disappointed.

This was a great “go exploring” trail right beside the bird refuge.

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

Significantly less muddy than the Kuamo’o trail leading up to the summit. Can’t speak on how strenuous this side is because we hiked up from Kuamo’o and descended here. Better views of the valley from this side. A little overgrown in some spots.

USE A WALKING STICK! I don’t know how people did it without one. Super muddy. Super slick. But WORTH IT IN THE END!!

Awesome site to come play in.

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.

This is a GORGEOUS hike!!! The views are outstanding. Like others have said, keep going after the picnic table. 360 degrees of views. There is mud and some scrambling, but bring one of the discarded walking sticks left by previous hikers to aid you a long the way.

Loved the views and the hike. Great hike !

Go to the second falls and recreate some Jurassic Park photos. The people saying it is not worth it are chumps and probably only saw the first falls. The second falls are further downstream. Go to the first falls and continue on down the trail. There will be 2 sections of spider like trees you have to duck under and crawl over. You will then hear the falls on your left. Go just a little further on the trail and down the muddy slope on your left so you can go to the base of the falls and swim.

Very slippery, prepare to get muddy!

Beautiful and fun hike! Did this early in the morning and it poured down rain. Slippery trail. Lots of gnats because of the fruit on the trail, mosquitoes too. Crossed the river a few times which was a bit tricky. Nice stop at the beach along the way.

Trail was a little muddy in places but the views were spectacular!

The view at the bottom of the falls is definitely worth the short but very slippery hike. This hike can be potentially dangerous in rainy conditions. If you are not an experienced hiker, don’t want to get muddy, or are not in the best of shape I would not recommend this hike. Technically they have the trail fenced off with numerous postings of ‘trail closings’, but if you really want to experience the essence and power of the falls, you need to trek down to the base of the falls because the overgrown lookout point doesn’t even do the falls justice. If you attempt this hike, make sure you are extremely sure footed and you know your skill level.

A “Must” on anyone’s bucket list if hikes. Take plenty of water and snacks as the afternoon gets very hot and you are exposed to the sun.

cool short trail down muddy, slippery root filled trail. maybe challenging for those concerned about trips n falls or uncomfortable with unsure footing. found it easier to walk in pot hole puddles on way down, although some are almost knee deep. way up was able to rock n root hop pretty easily. coast n breaking waves very scenic and easy to scramble left at bottom a short ways to queens bath, but too high surf to swim. although I'm tourist, several tourists made me nervous for them as they wandered out to edge of breaking waves for a picture. several waves breaking could easily have swept them out had they watched the spot they were posing for a few minutes.

Very muddy, but definitely worth the view of Hanalei.

This trail is completely overgrown 1.5 miles in. Usually use the app for trail running, but past a certain point the grass was upwards of 6’ tall and footing not so clear. Trail was interwoven with pig or hunter trails. Yes, saw lots of dog tracks at the beginning which tends to indicate hunters...not something I want to be walking around in 6’ tall grass knowing hunters could be nearby. Trail was basically an access road to the point it got overgrown. Oh well, was hoping to put in a solid 10 -14 miler given its connection to the other side of powerline. Got in 2 miles before I turned around. Couldn’t run past 1.5 miles or so

It was a nice secluded beach with small waterfalls and tide pools; but the waves were bigger and breaking on the shoreline, so it was hard to play in the water with the kids.

Great hike with my 12 and 9 year olds.

Nice payoff at the end! Wish we could have gone swimming but with two little kiddos it didn’t seem prudent. Beautiful though and we saw sea turtles.

Trail is definitely slick and messy! My 7 and 5 year olds are experienced hikers but it was challenging at points for them.

Snapped this pic of a fellow hiker (bearded brunette with red pack) and forgot to tell
Him! Will post here!

Love this hike. Fairly simple, but due to heat and humidity it gives mainlanders a good workout. I did work my way out to the sketchiest points of this hike, with its shear cliff drops. It’s very doable, just be smart and slow! Several people have fallen from this spot. So know your abilities, limitations and respect this giant!

Very muddy but the pools are amazing
