My wife and I enjoyed this hike. Our shoes got a bit muddy. I tried hard to keep them clean and dry. One slipped into the creek and got wet. It was our first hike in Hawaii and I felt like i really got a feel for the tropical terrain. The falls were beautiful.

Nice hike but way too many people on small trail.

Enjoyable, Easy, and worth it at the end!

Great hike and challenging. What makes it hard is the steep decline with the muddy wet areas. However retiring was faster, but more strenuous due to using leg muscles allot. The water fall was great and there are cliffs where you can jump into the pond.

I would describe this as a muddy obstacle course.
Nice little waterfall and swimming hole at the end and pretty creek that runs along side part of the trail which you must cross a few times. Not really hard in terms of steepness but it is very muddy and slippery with some rocky and uneven ground to cross. We did find out as we were leaving that the road you enter on is an easier 3 mile hike up through the forest to a different area but is not as challenging.

Did this last week, great hike, awesome pictures.

Beautiful hike! Very muddy, and part of the trail is closed due construction but it’s still very doable. Follow the gravel road straight down instead of veering left and it will take you around to the trailhead. Would recommend going early, as the falls get crowded.

no crowds!!! wonderful trail. I recommend for anyone visiting this area. take your kids but not your gramma. bring a garbage bag and collect trash as u go.

way to many people!!!

beautiful rainforest, flowers and waterfalls, no crowds!! love this hike. be sure and and go to the ruins and the waterfalls. it took us about 2 hours. but we stopped to take many pictures.

unique in that you are hiking down to a waterfall. moderately steep decline over many roots but there are plenty of ropes and trees you can hold to help you down(and back up).there's only one part that opens up for a view but mostly it's thru narrow paths with alot of tree cover and mud. we ran into a hunting party with 6 dogs who just killed a boar. pretty awesome. don't forget to bring a swimsuit to swim at the waterfall.

great hike. very muddy but totally worth it. besides the start of the trail where you have to enter thru a hole in a fence off of Pali highway, you have to get around 2 other fences. take the first trail directly on the left and you will get to the first fence, go right along the fence and duck thru a few trees to get to a wide open field with breathtaking views. after walking across the field and up to the gravel road you will approach a dead end with another short fence. make your way around that fence also to the right and climb the short muddy hill where most of the hike begins. you will ultimately follow the stream up to the waterfall. you will have to cross the stream 2 or 3 times but it's great fun. waterfall is beautiful. round trip it takes about an hour. highly recommended. just be prepared for both feet to be completely drenched in water and mud.

Pretty easy hike with a waterfall at the end as a reward. Went early before the lot attendant arrived, but we still had to pay upon leaving. Go early as the parking lot was full by 9am.

Love this hike! Little sad that construction has made it harder to get to the main trail but still completely worth it. A lot of people we met on the way seem to have gotten lost on the way. Think I’ll bring some ribbon to mark the trail next time I go.

Beautiful and so worth it. The most crowded times is early morning/noon, later on gets a bit better. Fun for everyone, would suggest to wear safe shoes since it’s gets muddy/slippery places. For a tourists, I would suggest this waterfall as a must to visit what doesn’t take a lot of effort but are so beautiful.

Muddy, slippery but overall easy hike. Took us two hours with all the pictures. All the warnings about bacteria in the water is true and serious, think twice before you step in the water or consider to swim.

One of my favorite waterfall hikes on the island! Make sure you wear water shoes or sandals, there will be multiple times that you have to pass through a stream and it is difficult not to get wet. At the end of the trail, the waterfall is quite beautiful! I’ve noticed that compared to other times of the year, the summer is a lot more crowded. Try hiking up the first waterfall to find the moss slides and an even more private falls! Cheers!

the trail splits at the very beginning giving you the option to go down or stay up. I would recommend going down then take the top on the way back. I went with my 15, 10 and 8 yr olds. it was a little challenging because the trail was slippery but we made it!

Beautiful trail that opens to a grove of large pines! Muddy and rooty- of course!

Wear shoes with good traction! I wore hiking boots and my kids had water socks. Both worked fine for the slippery trail. Gorgeous hike. We started at 6pm and were the only ones there.

Awesome! Muddy and slippery but worth the trip!

Good easy hike!

Literally my fav hike eva holy shat so fun, I like jumped and stuff, there where like trees there. Overall the water was nice. Muddy too. Outdoors is cool. Recommend for people over the age of 77.

This is a very crowded trail is the only reason I'm giving 3 stars instead of 5. If it wasn't so crowded, I would give 5. If it has been raining, be prepared to get your shoes muddy.

We went on the sunny day, so the trail was easy and very beautiful, but the waterfall not so full of the water.

I believe so, if you go to this waterfall on the rainy days, the trail gets much more complicated and dangerous, but at the same time, the waterfall should be worth it.

Also, has to mention, that the colorful tapes helped a lot, but we still used “AllTrails” map, too.

Love this hike. Moderate for sure especially when wet. Falls were not really running too much in June. Rope swing always fun

We loved it. Stopped so many times along the way to capture pics of the beauty. Met nice people going up and down. Highly recommend it. It is a bit muddy and you do have to climb a rope about 20 feet. Enjoy! Aloha!

Amazing hike ... we went early (on the trail by 7 AM) and had the falls and swimming hole to ourselves for 40 minuets before the multitudes started arriving.

Good easy trail for all ages. Took our 3 year old (have to carry her most of the way as she nodded off) and our 8 year old no problem.
A bit muddy when rain, especially if you go up to the trail on the left having reached the water fall. Beautiful bamboo lined trail from this part.

Great hike with gorgeous waterfalls at the end. I have done this many times and will again.
