Absolutely amazing views make for some pretty impressive photos! My husband and I completed the hike on a sunny, dry, yet windy day (I would NOT recommend this hike after a day of rain)! I would consider the trail a scramble, with use of hands and provided ropes. Not for the faint of heart or those who are scared of heights! I’m 6 months pregnant and did not have a problem conquering this trail, just make sure to wear good shoes! Go for it, the views are worth it!!

Trail entrance in near bus parking area, through the bamboo!

Great Views.trail is always packed so recommend to start in the morning. We walked all the way up, starting at Honolulu zoo, so you don‘t have to pay for parking nor worry about getting a parking spot. It‘s an easy trail. But stay hydrated.

really interested in finding a group to do this with, I'll be in Honolulu from 5/3-5/8. Instagram is 05mada05

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

really interested in hiking this between may 3-6 if anyone is interested. my instagram is jenniferlien_ if anyone wants to join / has experience doing it!

Easy! However we didn't do the rim because of high winds. If you don't like high places pick another hike. My wife cried a little out of fear but I was able to talk her up the falls. Also get ice spikes so you dont fall off the rim.

Straight trail all the way up on the old rail track. Little areas on it where you can stop and catch your breath on the way up. Great view on the top! A little bit harder going down since steps can be a bit wide.

Aloha! I do various guided hikes with photos on Oahu. I hike often/weekly. Hiking this week and this weekend. Feel free to check out some examples of photos on my instagram @mike.karas. You can message me there or at mikekarasphotography@gmail.com

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

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

Absolutely amazing...can be dangerous if not careful but the view at the top was worth it!

Very fun and challenging hike, you will feel like a baby deer walking down it though!

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.

Easy for the first half getting harder for the other half. But when u reach the top is feel so great

if you are out of shape this hike will kill you lol

Did this hike 21 April 2018 with some friends took us 7 hours it was rainy and muddy and being very careful along the crater ridgeline. A lot of people did not continue on to the crater they just did waterfalls and turned around. Which in my honest opinion is more sketchy to climb down those waterfalls than to continue around the crater. This hike is not a easy hike so I would not recommend small children or the elderly. They are some sketchy areas for sure. But we all had a big smile on our faces when we completed the hike and was grateful and humble to come out in one piece!!!

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

I appreciate this spot only as a workout. The view at the top was good, but other than that nothing really to see.

A fun workout hike! Views make it worth it

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

So many stairs! But a great view and sense of accomplishment.

Busy, but awesome views!

Quite muddy and a bit challenging up the third waterfall... but the best hike we’ve done in Oahu so far!

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.

We love this hike! We do it whenever we come home. It's not good to do when it's hot and the there's a lot more erosion between the railroad ties than there used to be. The view at the top is pretty and the breeze is relaxing. My kid has been able to do this hike since he was 5.

If you want to climb the sides of waterfalls and hike thru the jungle, look no further.

We cut out the crater by taking the shortcut, because the summit was socked in with clouds when we went. Just be ready for a long hike -- especially if you plan on doing the whole thing.

A fun quick hike, the stairs at the topi are killer but well worth the view from the top!

Short easy hike. Go early to avoid large crowds.

Good hike for beginners. Nice view at the top.
