Actually stayed on the marked trail and not this one. The map at the top shows 2 trails. Numbered 1 & 2. This hike is number 2 and it looked like the trailhead was down the road where the sign says 4x4 vehicles only.

One of my favorite hikes on Oahu. The rainforest is stunning as is the waterfall at the trailhead. Not much in the way of views until you get way up high on the ridge but this trail ticks a lot of boxes... good workout, beautiful plants and wildlife, and a waterfall at the start! Prepare for rain, drizzle, and mud as this trail is in a typically wet area of Oahu. Enjoy!

There are two main hikes that shares the same 'trailhead'. Not too far into the start, look for a junction marked by a 'memorial cross' on the ground. Turn left and ascend steeply to gain the ridge top. If you continue straight on the path at the junction, this takes you into the gulch and to the lower falls. Beware of weather conditions.
As for the ridge hike, the views are spectacular, and there is also a pillbox along the way. You can also hike to the top of Makaua upper falls if you do the ridge hike. This trail will eventually connects to the Pu'u Manamana Crouching Lion trail.

Nice beach trail, the climb was really fun and the views amazing.

Tired of the monotony of getting dirty and having near death experiences trying to reach some jaw dropping view? This peaceful and beautiful walk through the woods can help break that up. Sadly there was not as much garbage to pick up as I'm used to, until detouring over to the 'Ualaka'a loop, where people seem to find it a more suitable environment to leave their trash behind. Say hello to the cats and chickens living in harmony in the parking lot.

We were here today with our 4 and 6 year old Girls and it was hard. For hiking the trail with kids i‘d like to recommend the age of the kids with 6 or older. The waterfall was much fun.

Great hike! Definitely agree with some of the reviewers that rec. to go right to start with the steep uphill climb. At the top before going down definitely rec. to take the Moleka Trail. It’s a great out and back trail through a bamboo forest.

Went today and it was beautiful! Lots of roots and rocks, on the harder side of moderate. Not much to look at along the hike but the waterfall is nice and cold. Saw many kids doing the hike. Don’t let the easy beginning fool you.

Moderate hike with a pretty nice waterfall. Be ready to scramble a little bit and hike over roots.

it was a lot of fun cliff jumping.

Definitely a moderate hike with lots of roots and rocks. Unfortunately there isn’t a lot to look at compared to many other hikes on the island. The waterfall at the end is interesting, but way too crowded to enjoy.

The boar is gone now.
The hike was beautiful and absolutely would recommend. We have done it a few times now and love it every time. Be ready to climb some waterfalls and wear good shoes for slippery rocks.

Easy hike at 2.5 miles. My friend's 4 year old walked it. It has a couple of small streams and waterfalls, and through-the-trees views of the ocean.

Amazing hike and beautiful waterfall at the end. Super muddy but so much fun! I decided to wear water shoes...and it was a great idea! Definitely a long hike...so be prepared! We had plenty of snacks and lots of water! I would definitely do this hike again!

Good, just short. Enter the trail here to connect to other trails if you’re looking for more distance. Parking is nearby and the tantalus lookout up the hill (which isn’t part of the trail) is worth your time. There are picnic areas and restroom facilities there.

Great views of the mountains. Little muddy so if it’s raining it’s probably not a good choice

Amazing views throughout. Muddy and fun! The route I prefer is right at the first fork, left at the second, (look for the orange tie) that will take you to the bottom of the falls then you can hike up to the top!

1st half walk in park, 2nd half moderate. Wet and slick. Waterfall was amaze ballz. Good times

Greatest hidden gem on the island. Also secluded and extremely lightly traveled. My fiancé and I were the first ones on the trail for the day and it had just turned noon when we started. So we definitely used the privacy for some “honeymoon” time when we got to the waterfall.

Awesome views. Be aware that, after a certain point, the All Trails route does not coincide with The Hiker’s Guide to Oahu. If you try to overlap maps, you may get turned around.

It is a sanctuary in the middle of the city. I have driven On Pali highway many years and would have never guessed that this existed. Thank you AllTrails

I hiked this trail in pretty heavy rain last week and was rewarded with a waterfall all to myself for 20 minutes. Fun pools around the base of the lower falls that you can jump into from maybe 15-20 ft.

not bad...fairly easy...bring some water shoes for the rocks in the river

good hike with a few different environment to enjoy. cloudy at the top, so can't speak to the view. relatively ~1.5 hour side jaunt over to moanalua falls from trail

Interesting valley hike, don't miss the ruins on the left going in and all the great cultural signage, pics added.

My wife and I did this hike today. Parking is on a public street. Not a whole lot to look at on the trail to and from the waterfall, but totally worth it when you are at the waterfall itself. This hike is definitely more hard than moderate. Lots of steep rocky hills and roots to climb up and down. Can be very slippery after a rainfall. Make sure you stay hydrated for this hike due to it being a physically demanding climb both ways.

My husband and I have been on this hike twice in the past week! There's a waterfall and rope swing at the end of the hike so bring swimsuits! I'd also advise water shoes! The rocks can be a little rough on bare feet! (I have vibram five finger water shoes, bought on amazon for half price and I also wear them hiking! I absolutely love them!) The way down isn't bad but coming back is a little more challenging!

It was a nice hike with lots of different terrain. It does get muddy in some spots and slick in others. We didn’t really encounter many fruit flies and they were pretty much for only 10 seconds at the most at a time. Plus, they were very small like gnats so nothing to worry about. Waterfall is small, there are a few biting mosquitoes when you get down there. All in all an interesting hike with nice views. The views weren’t breathtaking but beautiful with ocean in very far distance. It was an easy enough hike and the trailhead has a small rectangular sign so it is easily missed but is after a farm and has a gate to it. Enjoy the serenity!

As a hiker just starting out this hike was perfect..4km..a mix of tropical environment and then areas blanketed in pine...and stunning views!
