    Sam Vigil completed Waipuilani Falls

    DNF.

    A. Start at the Pali Lookout, park and pay the fee, check out the lookout, and then walk down in the opposite direction and you'll find the actual trailhead.

    B. Very confusing trail. I can't imagine this is actually moderately trafficked, there was hardly any footprints or foot trails to follow. Ribbons in the trees help you find your way, and if you have a full charge on your phone or whatever with GPS and this app you'll be alright. But. It is difficult. Attempted 6/7/2018 and it was muddy and very slick, leaves covering the trail most of the time. Walking through a bamboo forest is pretty sweet and was a nice surprise. Not too humid like other tropical hikes that I've attempted in the past. It just took us twice as long as it should have for the distance because we were trying to find the trail half of the time.

    I'm sure the falls are worth it if you can get there. We unfortunately had to turn back for time constraints. But I'd love to attempt it again if I end up back on Oahu.

    Beautiful hike. The map I followed doesn't utilize the Colorado Trail very well, so we ended up following the road from the lower trailhead to the top of Mt. Elbert. This is a LONG one though, started at 0450 and summited at 0952, then left at 1054 to arrive at the lower trailhead again at approximately 0230. We were exhausted, but happy to complete the trail today.
    - Beautiful wildflowers most of the way up
    - Tons of aspens would make this a gorgeous autumn hike
    - Nice views of Mt. Massive, La Plata, Leadville, the Twin Lakes, and countless other peaks
    - Take a ton of water, don't try the 4WD road if you only have a 2WD, and make sure that you pace yourself. You can burn yourself out pretty quickly if you aren't careful about your energy expenditure and have poor breath control.

    Happy hiking!
