Impressive view of windward O'ahu from brink of pali (cliffs) at 1200 feet elevation, Ko'olau Range. Winds are usually so strong that one can lean against the wall of wind.

Wonderful hike! Great in the morning got there around 8 took about an hour to the top and back. We got lost twice. When driving to the trailhead it seems like your going to the Pali golf course and the First Presbyterian Church. Parking at the church is free and easy to get to the trail take the trail on the left with the chain. The reason we got lost is because we made it to the graffitied water tower if you make it there turn around. There is a trail up a hill to the left before the water tower take this to the big tree and make a right there is an arrow. Not too far after the tree to get to the beautiful falls. It does gets muddy in spots and a walking stick is very helpful have fun and be safe!

Great hike and not that long of a hike! Free parking only ask for donations. Map is easy to follow get in at the visitor center. There is a main trail and then off the main trail are other smaller paths to follow. I would definitely try some of the smaller paths and then go back on the main. Not as crowded as other falls. Waterfall is beautiful so happy to try this trail out.

Out of the short hikes I have done on the island, this one is my favorite. The waterfall is awesome! The path wasn’t even too muddy. We parked at the Koolau Conference Center to get to the trailhead.

The reviews on this site were extremely helpful in navigating the trail. When you get the graffiti tower look to the left for the trail. Once you hit the cobblestone path, keep going until you see a large tree on your right with an arrow carved into it, pointing right to the falls. Enjoy!

Muddy and definitely dangerous, this hike is for those up to a challenge. There are parts where you are essentially rock climbing without any ropes, or trusting the ropes someone left behind (which as of 5 days ago were fine, but you never know). Views are absolutely incredible. I recommend this hike to anyone with steady footing looking for an adventurous and breathtaking hike.

Wonderful short hike with a great reward. When you get to the graffitied tower look to your left. That’s where the trail starts... eventually the trail becomes cobblestoned. After around 7 mins you’ll come to big tree in your right. Has an arrow carved in. Make a right.

Used this trail from the small trailhead off the pali at the sharp curve. Hiked halfway to Maunawili Falls Connection to make it to the falls. Great hike, beautiful long mountain views. Falls is great with 10, 15, and 30 foot cliff jumping into small pool.

I did get also confused and ended up hiking an extra half of mile in a very hard route . Extra exercise :) . Very nice and short hike and good for the family . Plenty of parking on a Sunday afternoon . We saw a few other hikers which is always nice .

yup we miss that right turn by the big tree. But it was okay. It wasn’t just us. Six other people missed it too

The trail is very poorly marked. You have to make a right turn off of the cobblestone portion towards the beginning of the hike. If you miss the turn and try to go by the maps on here you will get lost like we did. A leisurely hike in the woods turned into an 4 mile uphill jungle excursion with my 65 y/o parents.
So be very careful not to miss the right turn at the big tree and it should be a good time.
