Did this hike today with my 13 year old daughter. First time in Hawaii. Very few people on this trail this morning and the views from the top are amazing! Definitely worth the drive from Waikiki.

This trail was very beautiful. Lots of breathtaking views and it is not a hard hike. The trail can be really muddy so bring shoes you don't mind getting dirty.

great undergrowth and tropical forest views, not many vista views

It took almost 10 hours from the start to end of the trail and back to the start.

Check Hawaiian Trail and Mountain Club hike schedule for the next Waimano Ridge hike. The trail will be somewhat cleared after they hiked it.

The other two hikes with similiar end view are Manana Ridge Trail and Waiau. Waiau is probably the most difficult. Another possible hike is via Waimalu Ditch but it is very overgrown.

Beautiful trail, reasonably interesting and moderately challenging (any trail I can hike in my swimsuit is not hard...). Would give it 5 but it was somewhat crowded with teens playing music loud enough you couldn’t ignore it (bah I’m old and want to hear the nature)

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

The hike is short and steep along the cliffs to an amazing view of the west side. We went at sunset, and it was so beautiful that our friends actually ended up getting engaged at the top! :)

It was my first ever hike. Two days ago. Still paying for it:) It was marked pretty well, and incredibly beautiful. Oh ya, and definitely don’t go after a rain. It gets pretty slippery and super muddy.

A great trail for us and our pups. Slightly muddy in some areas but overall not particularly challenging while offering great views. Also not too crowded!

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.

hey hiking ohau fans. I am looking for people who would like to join me on that. I will be in Ohau from the 8th until 21th of November. Hit me up on Insta @made86made. Would be amazing to meet some nice people and enjoy the hike - Marc

The end makes this trail worth it! It was rather muddy today, but we didnt feel the need to put our spikes on. I could see how it would be easy to get lost on this trail. We got to the falls easily enough, through a combination of following the alltrails GPS map, following ribbons, and keeping an eye on where the mountains are. Got lost for a few minutes on the way back, but found our way by using the alltrails GPS and walking in the direction of the trail.
Be prepared to get muddy!!

Wow! This trail is awesome. Dress to get wet. Bring about a camelback’s worth of water. Bring some high calorie snacks. Don’t wear shoes you don’t want saturated in rich brown mud. There are parts of the trail that made me wish I had cleats on my shoes. The lower part of the hike can be pretty hot, but the peaks are relatively cool because of the breeze. If it is overcast or raining then it will feel great, but the mud will be even slicker. Kids can make it to the waterfalls, but they would have to be pretty touch to complete the rest. Safe travels!

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

People are getting multiple hikes at this location confused. We were thinking we were hiking the 2.2 mile loop hike and ended up taking the upper ridge 14 mile hike! We started the hike around 3:45 and ran out of daylight while on the side of the mountain towards the end. There were lots of dark scary tunnels and two stream crossings. We had to use the rope to climb along the edge of the cliff. It was very muddy and slippery! The trail was overgrown in parts so you couldn’t see the ground! There are many parts of the trail that the ridge has a treacherous drop off if you loose your step or slip! This one you definitely want to start the hike early and in good hiking shoes and bring insect repellent! This hike should definitely be rated “”hard” not a moderate!

Toughest hike so far Mountain Ray.

Logs by order of Mountain Ray.

This was a moderately challenging hike. We are a fit couple who needs adventure, so turning back at the picnic table was not for us. After the table, it is mainly a service road, so not as scenic, until you get to the top. Great fun, not too steep.

One of my favorite hikes. Because of what it symbolizes .

Just climb up from the base of the third waterfall, cross it a couple of times, and you will come to the crater rim.

If you want a real life jungle book hike that ends with waterfalls, rope swings, and cliff jumping then this is a MUST DO. This was the most fun I have ever had on a hike! It was a decent workout getting to the waterfall area and it felt like a little party over there with people flipping off cliffs and swinging on the ropes. BRING SWIMMING SHORTS or BATHING SUITE!

The climb out can feel steep at times but just keep churning those legs as it is doable incline up the enormous tree roots.

Great hike with some breathtaking views and a rewarding swimming hole at the very end. Bring a walking stick and definitely do not attempt if it’s rained recently!

Definitely best to go in the early morning or week day if you can, it gets crowded but the views are definitely worth it. It is a short hike but don’t forget about the sun cause it gets hot, so bring lots of water!!

Hiked it counter clockwise and got to the base of the third waterfall lost the trail from here and had to turn back the way we came. This trail is beautiful and quite rewarding, but is very wet, muddy, slow going, and can be VERY dangerous. Pack lots of water and snacks and start early. DO NOT hike this one alone.

long hike, moderately difficult until you factor in its length and last 2 miles or so, which together may make this more difficult than it looks on paper. last segment up to the summit is relatively muddy and overgrown. could do with a dog because no climbing. 6 hours at a moderate pace

We went today and it rained last night, the trail was muddy and slippery. It was hard but worth it, bring a change of clothes.

Live here and a well experienced hiker

Simple tips:
- Research before going on this hike.
- Or go with someone that has done it before.
- Know the short loop back; so you don’t have to back track down the 3 waterfalls again (this is if you’re not doing the whole crater)

This is NOT a maintained trail. Be safe

I just went to the falls and back. Nice hike, but got several big bites...recommend bug spray.

It’s a great hike for beginners. Half way through you have a really pretty view of the H3.

Extremely muddy and super long.. not as rewarding as other hikes in Hawaii.
