So beautiful! Me and my family went there today. Very confusing at first to find where to start the trail . But once you find it there are pink/orange tape markers to guide your way. Very muddy and some parts a little difficult to navigate. The terrain is rocky/muddy. Wear waterproof boots. You have to cross the stream multiple times before you get to the falls. There are multiple routes that you’ll see as you’re hiking the trail. For instance on the way up we took one route and coming down we took an easier way. The falls are beautiful. I highly recommend this trail! Happy hiking!

Easy hike, but the humidity in there is something else! My shirt was soaked before I even got to the waterfall.
Not the most impressive waterfall but the forest leading up to the waterfall is stunning

Easy hike. Very busy.

Hiked November 2018.
This trail is the best one I’ve hiked this far....for the dogs. It was well shaded the entire way and even had a few fresh water run offs for them to drink. I really enjoyed the view and the finale at the end.
Definitely worth repeating.

It’s pretty fun, and the falls is worth the trip. A couple beautiful spots for photos along the way. It’s totally muddy, but so is everything!!!!

A little muddy, but ok. Beautiful foliage and loved that we did not see another person the entire hike.

Just hiked this about 2 hours ago. They are doing some filming for a new movie on the trail. Super neat. Very slick on the trail but the destination was worth it!

Pretty!!! Muddy, slippery and bring bug spray.

This was a nice hike. Did it about a month ago. There are a few spots to go off trail and enjoy the stream. We went after a nice rain so it was a bit muddy, but very enjoyable. The waterfall at the end offers a refreshing view.

Hike was awesome but when I finished the cops were given out citations at the trailhead said it was illegal and off limits.

I loved this hike! Definitely bring shoes that u dont care for since it will get super muddy. Bring bug spray because there are LOTS of bugs. I got bit everywhere. I’d recommend starting the hike around noon or early afternoon the latest. Make sure u dont stay there when it gets dark because it’s easy to get lost. The waterfall is nice and there’s an area you can jump from. Also, make sure you bring covers for your car and/or extra clothes so you dont get your car ruined or muddy.

I really enjoyed this hike. It was an easy trail and I liked the waterfall but the water was a bit cold. I liked the tall and beautiful trees especially in the beginning of the hike

This hike is very lovely through the forest and along a few streams. We parked near the Hawaii Nature Center to begin the hike, and headed to the left (counterclockwise) to hike the loop. It is wet and somewhat muddy but very enjoyable. The trees will cover you from the rain and/or sun.

11/10/2018-Started around 0800 and came across 4 groups of hikers (total of about 16 people). We managed to find a stall in the parking lot and finally got to see the streams after a good rain! So awesome! It was drizzling most of the time and only came down a little harder for a few minutes of our trek out.

Great hike to a nice water fall on the East Side of the island. We were the only ones there for about 30 minutes which made it nice.

The flowers along the trail were nice to look at and the canopy cover from the trees made a nice touch. Easy to find, parking is easy, and the hike was nice and relaxing.

Fantastic views. Light showers the day we went so definitely slippery/precarious in spots. Cooled you off though! Rehydrated and rested at the second pillbox for a while to enjoy the amazing views and breezes.

Saw some parents bringing their toddlers, which definitely made me a bit anxious on their behalf.

As others have noted, the ridge does have some drop offs, can get super slippery/muddy when it rains and has ropes in spots to help you climb up. A couple of the ropes look like they’re on their last threads though so test before putting all your weight on those.

very easy trail but endured much rain and mud ( it is after all in a rain forest). the falls we're beautiful but they were roped off so no getting under them

the trail itself was very difficult to find and it was quite apparent that many hikers found different ways to get to the falls which were well worth it!

I would totally do this hike, main reason there was NO crowd. A good workout, nice views but do be careful it is muddy and gets slippery.

Awesome hike! Beautiful views. Worth every drip of sweat 酪

Went for sunrise, was raining, dark, and muddy, but cleared right as we got to the top and saw a beautiful sunrise! Definitely worth getting so dirty, hoping to do again soon

It was great, a little muddy but worth the trip to get to the waterfall!!

Everyone is right. Super muddy and is a challenge to not fall because of it. Super rad hike through a very cool forest and some cool lookout spots. Wear shoes you don’t care about or water shoes. Do not wear flip flops, several people did and ended up walking barefoot.

Wonderful hike, went up fresh after a little rain which made the upper third of the hike very muddy and slippery. Altogether a beautiful view and trip, lots to see along the way as well!
