Very difficult hike, which requires shoes, preferably hiking boots, not flip flops or running shoes. This is an extremely muddy, rutty pathway, that’s not suitable for kids. But, this has to be the most epic hard hike, with deep swim pool with 10-50ft rock jumps into the pool. It’s actually 3.9mi round trip, which requires 4hrs total to enjoy the hike and pool. The words for this hike: epic, awesome, stunning, difficult, very muddy, incredible ending! Bug Spray required :-)

the pillbox with the peace sign is further down past the first one. Just dont turn right into another trail and you will miss it.

beautiful scenery. I didn't expect the steps to be so steep but it evened out at points. such a great challenge to take on. next time we will have a carrier for our 2 year old.

The trail is initially very steep, but levels out toward the top. The pillbox we found had a nice view of the beach. I was disappointed that we couldn’t find the other pillbox with the peace sign on it. We came across a sign that said “private property”, so I think the other pillbox may have been back there somewhere.

Even though it is a shorter hike, make sure to bring plenty of water and proper footwear. I saw a few folks struggling up the trail in sandals, long pants, and what looked like not enough water.

8/18/2018-Definitely one of the muddier and more humid visits to this trail. We started around 0735 and crossed paths with 20 groups/solo hikers. There were a handful of large groups with kids in tow on our way out so it seems like the popular time to go hiking is around 0900. The waterfall was nice and the mud slowed us down quite a bit but well worth the exercise!

Definitely a chill hike, play in the mud on the way up and wash it off in the falls as you swim in some amazing pools!

Great trail. Great pool below falls with some good jumping into water from 10-50 ft elevations for daring. Muddy. This is not a trail for flip flops or tennis shoes, should really use hiking shoes....Dozens of blown out flip flops on trail. A nice 3 hr - 4 hr round trip with time at falls and pool. Very muddy ... not too buggy but you will get bit by a few mosquitos.

Gorgeous waterfall/ pond to swim in. Muddy hike that was a little tough to follow at times. Shady. Not child friendly.

love Hamama good for exercise, views, and cooling off after a nice workout

Prepare to walk through water more thanks once to get to the beautiful water fall. So worth it.

A moderately easy trail with an awesome waterfall and swimming hole at the end.

They probably went via Po’opo’o Place or Kamahele St., the two alternate backways. They boarded up the Kamahele St. steps and posted signs telling hikers to go away.

This was a pretty cool hike. We did this with the little guys (7 & 4) in slippas with ease. The pool is cool but if it’s crowded just go a few more steps up the trail to the bridge and get in there. Not as deep but just as refreshing. The waterfall was worth the hike. Go early to ensure you have some time to yourself. It gets pretty crowded midday. Nice way to spend a Sunday with ohana!!

Awesome place and with a nice swimming area. Unfortunately I lost my knock off go pro there and am more concerned with losing all the great pictures I took than the camera itself. So if anyone finds it u are more than welcome to keep the camera I just want the memory card. (contour camera)

Nice and easy with the kids (11 and 6)

This trail is CLOSED for now. Not sure how others can review it in the past weeks. They have signs posted.

I’m going on my past experience before it was shut. Great views and awesome for exercise.

Very much interested! Who’s down? @hgonzo7

Make sure you bring bug spray and panchos. Its really muddy

got a little lost going up, but if you follow the creek you will be fine. beautiful waterfall at the end with an ice cold water hole to swim in. Be careful of flooding a lot of people died.

What a breathtaking view up there definitely must do trail

beautiful after a bunch of rain. fun to hang out and cool off. very easy hike

Good training area and near several parking lots

Muddy trail most days. Pools of mud if it has recently rained- but then falls are great! Prepare to mess hiking shoes big time. Barefoot may be way to go! Saw many morons with flip flops on. Lots of roots along most of trail. Hiking stick helpful due to mud. You have to cross over large stream a few times. Enjoyed this trail especially after a heavy rain- lots of fun and falls were great.

My favorite workout spot!!

Warning: deep woods off is not enough this is the most mosquito infested trail I have ever hiked but is 100% worth it. 100% Deet spray will work excellently though so as long as you use it you are good. Hiking/walking sticks are also helpful to navigate through the mud. It is just a gorgeous trail even by Hawaii standards and I know because I Live here. (I moved here largely for the great hiking). I live about 15 minutes away and if you want to join me on a trail sometime my email is justindavidsands@gmail.com.

Nice little hike, not much elevation gain. The highlight is the waterfall at the end. If you're down, wear a swimsuit - there are a few places that you can jump off of into the pool of water. The lowest is off the fall, the middle is to the right where the rope is, the highest one is on the left (you have to make your way up the trail).

Caught the sunrise. Super crowded but worth it.

I’ve hiked Maunawili many times, it’s one of my top hikes on Oahu. It’s useless to try avoiding the muddy terrain on this hike, so I’d recommend bringing old shoes you don’t care about. I’ve actually done the hike shoeless a few times. I wouldn’t recommend it without tough feet, but when the trail is very wet, this is the best option. The waterfall at the end is usually packed with tourists later in the day, which is the biggest letdown after hiking. The hike would be better if people didn’t regard the waterfall ledge as a seating area. It makes the already dangerous act of climbing (to continue up river) even more dangerous by dodging observers. By all means, climb up and jump in the first pool, just please don’t sit there and block people.
