Beautiful hike into the canyon, but I would not go all the way down to the river again. Stop at the the tree line (a little past the halfway point) as there are no views and you basically get whacked by bushes the majority of the time. We planned to have lunch by the river, but there were too many mosquitos so we immediately headed back up. We were glad to have good shoes and one hiking pole each to save our knees.

A great hike overall. Some muddy slippery sections and roots protruding but really not that bad. Wear the proper footwear and you will have no problem (Don't take flip flops)When the trail ends go down to left and push through some rocks to a separate set of falls with a great swimming hole. Water cold but awesome after the hike.
Keep in mind that you can't see the falls at the top. Some killer views though and well worth this easy / moderate hike. Enjoy.

Incredible hike! I’ve done a lot of hiking in Kauai and this is probably my favorite trial. We were lucky enough to have a perfectly clear day with no rain and the views were breath taking.

I would not want to do this hike on the rain!

If you wan

The view at the end is AMAZING!

Amazing hike! Trail defiantly is overgrown and wore shorts in which my legs got pretty chewed up. Completed in 3.5 hours but was moving and didn’t see anyone on the trail the entire time. The views at the end are incredible and great change of scenery throughout the hike.

Stream near the end was moving fast and 15 feet across. Ended up turning around. it rained the whole time and was muddy but fun. lots of walking on boards for hours. The beginning is very technical. Not a hike for young kids or people out of shape.

Loved this hike! Views are unbeatable!
