    Definitely hard to find the trail, luckily found some locals but even they had some troubles as there have been some new fences put up to keep people out. Getting on the trail takes a little creativity and willingness to bypass barriers that were clearly meant to keep you out. First fence somebody already cut a hole in, second fence needed to climb around it. Tip: after the second fence up the stairs, stay to the right, the trail continues behind an abandoned looking old processing facility or something; don’t go left along what looks to be the main trail (this is a hunting trail)
    Falls were pretty good. Lots of river crossings.

    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.

    Amazing amazing hike. Views from the top are just spectacular. And the variation in the forests was so cool. The other thing I loved about this hike was the smells, some floral, some woody. Overall just awesome. Do be prepared for some cardio work at the top with all those stairs.

    Very crowded trail, for a waterfall that is only ok by Hawaiian standards. Can’t really swim in the pool or stand under the falls. And had to pay $5 for parking. If this trail were almost anywhere else in the world it would get 4 or 5 stars, but there are so many nearby better hikes with better views and better falls. Don’t waste your time with this one - unless you need a hike that you can bring grandma on.

    I am in decent shape and this trail kicked my butt. Definitely not for the out of shape or faint of heart - although I personally do have a fear of heights but was still able to finish. Climbing up the third waterfall was great fun, not technically challenging but long and got strenuous by the end. The crater rim is steep and muddy and by far the most difficult and dangerous part of this hike. There are helpful ropes in many spots - but there are also several spots that could have used a rope but didn’t have one. Took about 6 hours round trip, including a couple short breaks.
