This is a nice trail that begins on private property. One pretty waterfall at the end. Not very challenging.

Great family hike! I’ve heard that this hike is super busy, but we didn’t experience that at all. I think the key is to go later in the day, to avoid everyone starting their excursions on the road to Hana. We got there around 330 pm and only saw a handful of people. We were totally alone at the 2nd waterfall and didn’t see a single person on our way back down. The 1st waterfall is super close. If you want to do the 2nd one, you’ll have to go through a gate which has a bunch of signs talking about how dangerous it is, and how it is for experienced hikers only. It wasn’t at all difficult for my kids. I think they have them up to make sure people are being cautious. I could see it being intense if there had recently been a lot of rain or something, but it was really quite mild when we went. Beautiful trail. Breathtaking waterfall!

The beach was great however the trail map goes through a private property I couldn’t access. It’s easy enough to go around. Be weary of doing this in flat soles or sandals. The ground is very smooth and next to a cliff for much of the path.

Great short trail to a beautiful view overlooking the coast. Don’t miss this hike. Bright sun for much of the trail,so be prepared. If it has rained, can be pretty muddy.

Challenging but views are worth it.

amazing views! a bit muddy/slippery, but worth every step!

Super short hike down to the blowhole. I knocked off a star because of how incredibly crowded it was. I would advise hiking boots or at the very least tennis shoes, but you will see people venturing down in flip flops. Be prepared to have a few heart attacks watching children haul ass down the rocks while they're parents meander their way down, oblivious to the danger the surroundings present to their kids.

When we hiked the trail, it was fairly dry, so I would rate this as an easy hike rather than moderate based solely on those conditions. The bamboo forest was absolutely my favorite part of the hike. Hearing the bamboo stalks knock together with the breeze was really cool. The banyan tree was also really beautiful! If there's no risk of a flash flood you can get closer to the waterfall, but beware there are fines if you get too close!

Great trail to experience! easy walk besides last few miles to climb back to the mountain.

Spectacular hike! I loved every minute of it. The views are breathtaking and the silence was golden. I was the only person in site for 90% of the hike.

Bring shoes that grip. Muddy trail!

The blow hole is big and fun! Short hike and a neat thing to see, but there are other places that are 5 star.

Beautiful views. Well worth the hike. Took me 2.5 hours round trip. In OK shape. I’d rate this as moderate.

Beautiful Views! Easy walk to scenic lookout.

Breathtaking views, great workout could be slippery in spots be careful if raining! With the time!

Super good and beautiful hike! Definitely not an easy hike, more moderate to hard with lots of inclines and crossing over streams. Way worth it though!

Moderate difficulty. Lots of steps. Bring plenty of water and some snacks. It’s helpful if you have hiking boots for the mud and the hike down afterwards to protect those toenails! About 3 hours round trip. Well worth it, but stick to the trail.

This is an easy small trail for the entire family to see a few of the pools and the ocean. The good news is that the park is open and the bathrooms are working.even though the federal government is shut down. The bad news is that the trail to the pools is closed. Some people have found a way to get down there however, but you do so at your own risk. There are lots of reminders about flash floods and falling. Stick to the trail is the motto here. We came in the back way from piilani highway which was a nice route without any traffic. A little bumpy in spots but driveable. From there we continued into Hana and all the way around the other end of the north side of the island. Leave early as there is a lot to see.

Awesome trail but not for inexperienced. Pretty steep climb up.

Great one, do in the nmorning to avoid clouds. Did it for sunrise - turns out the gate is locked until 7 AM, so you'll have to add 0.7 miles x 2. Worth it. Easy to follow and walk, takes about 2 hours (with the extra 1.4 miles)

Nice one. There are several options while down in the crater, you can adjust based on weather and you fitness level. Terrain is VERY easy, so you might end up doing more miles than you think.

Interesting loop. I haven't walked it like that (did the two seperatly back and forth). Not 100% sure how you get back to your car, I supposed hitchhike?

This is really short, almost too short to be called a hike, and you can do it in flip flops... but it’s incredible! The landscape is rough and rocky (what I imagine Mars is like)... at one point I brushed up against a rock and it was a good thing I was wearing pants because it would’ve been a cut up leg. We ventured down to heart rock and got some awesome shots of the rock & blowhole. People... please pay attention to the warnings... the blowhole is dangerous and can suck you in and you probably won’t survive. There was a kid there that stuck his head in and all I could do was pray for him.

I was so disappointed with this hike which I hate because I love everything Hawaii. I have to admit being from the desert this was my first hike in a tropical environment so it took some getting used to. Even with good hiking shoes I fell 3 times and slid almost the whole way back. The trails were so muddy that my shoes were just caked and I had no traction. The bamboo forest was really my favorite part even though it’s not very big. We got to the 1.1 mile mark and couldn’t find a trail and instead of trekking through the stream we had to turn around. I was really hoping to get a chance to see those waterfalls but the App just showed that we were heading the wrong direction.

My mother would not let me get too close, and by that I mean we were a solid 2 football fields away from the blowhole. But besides overprotective mothers, this is a must do! I recommend no children, as it is a pretty steep climb down nothing but rocks. Also I saw some kids about 50 ft away from the hole itself, and I will not lie, I was kinda freaking out. Super dangerous. Still, it is beautiful, and you should do it!!!!!!!

We did this trail a year ago, we were looking for a quick hike to do before getting on the plane to go home. the reviews that warn about proper shoes weren't posted yet. it's no joke, the slippery rocks kind of got old after a while, and after slipping a few times I just wanted to turn around. that said, it's very pretty... it's Hawaii!

Steep at first then very flat and easy, short trail. Great views feels like you are walking on mars or another planet! Blowhole is cool too

Took my wife and two kids (10) and (12) on this hike yesterday. Agree with others only ‘hard’ aspect to this was the length and in particular, as it relates to the length, the energy required for the final 3 miles re switchbacks. Super serene, unique terrain found nowhere else. We really enjoyed it!

Great views. Start early.
