Great hike!! A buddy and I went at around 7:30a, we only hiked to the top of the third waterfall due to time constraints. It took us about 3.5 hours, 4 miles. We were lucky to have good weather, no rain or insane heat.

This is definitely not a child or dog (of any size) friendly hike. It is very rocky and muddy (hence slippery). The only thing I didn't enjoy about the was how slippery it was (we slipped and fell a few times, no major injuries, just got extra muddy), but other than that, I absolutely loved it.

If you're looking for a brisk walk, this is not your hike. If you enjoy obstacles like myself, you'll love this because there are LOTS of them!

This trail was awesome!!!! It was so beautiful there are so many places to stop and take pictures at and so many beautiful trees and flowers and the history of the trail is cool too! We took our 6month old German Shepherd at the time and her loved it! The waterfall at the end is so beautiful and awesome!!!! Can't wait to be back in Hawaii!!!

Did this hike yesterday. Didn't know there was a loop so I went around the crater and back down the waterfalls. Took me 4 hours and 12 minutes. Started raining as I went up the waterfall, but ended up just being cloudy as I went around the crater. If it wasn't so cloudy the hike would of been much more brutal, basically the entire crater section of the hike is exposed. I went alone only because I know this hike usually has a lot of people on it, but if you're inexperienced I would suggest bringing a friend for moral support lol. Great hike love how you get waterfalls and ridges in one hike

Went when they first opened, not too crowded at all! It was raining, so the waterfall was beautiful! Very quick and easy hike!

Gorgeous trail that ends with a 160ft waterfall. It was pretty muddy further up the trail when I went and bug spray is a must for the mosquitoes. I recommend going early (trail parking lot opens at 8am and costs $5) so you can get a spot and not deal with too many people crowding around the waterfall.

this trail is insaaaane. definitely do it with a group. we went up to the crater and saw light rain clouds roll over into the crater. we decided to do the loop anyway which was a big mistake. if you see even a slight change of rain, turn back. the trail becomes super muddy and extremely challenging. ropes are not available at all sections. the rain slowed is down so much we ended up finishing the hike in the dark which is not fun at all. so start early. other than rain, this was a breathtaking hike

There was a down pour and it got muddy and sticky. Best do research of the trail 1st before you go, or else you'd get lost easily
