Getting There

The first half of the hike is along very muddy off-roading trails, so take shoes you do not care about, there WILL BE MUD. The trail will be better if you do it at the beginning of the year, February-March during the "dryer" season. August-November will be the worst in terms of mud, but the falls will have the most water consequently.

The last 1/10th mile of the hike is definitely the toughest. Very steep rocky grade! People have put up ropes to assist in the decent and ascent, definitely use them! The trail can become VERY slippery and can prove dangerous if you do not have a solid grip on these ropes. Surprisingly, the ascent on the return is actually less difficult than the descent to go to the falls. My biddest recommendation is to follow the path with the large rope, there is more rocks there to gain a better footing, the path with the smaller ropes is more slick mud and your footing will be less stable.

The hike starts just before the entrance to the LeoPalace Resort in Yona, Guam. Start point address is 221 Lake View Dr, Yona, 96915, Guam (13.419672, 144.746355). Park on the side of the road just before you enter LeoPalace, right next to the white domes

As mentioned above the first part of the hike was very muddy but easy, we even found some old WWII bullets that were uncovered by the rain. The steepness at the end before the waterfalls was tricky but manageable with the ropes. However I do NOT reccomend this hike for inexperienced hikers. Also, do not attempt this during wet season. The mud was so bad by the time we tried to make our way back up the hill it had turned into a mudslide and was unmanageable. We had to find an alternative route that took several hours until dark. Be very cautious.

It was a challenging hike. Great work out but was not enjoyable. Up and down muddy slides and got stung by something, maybe wild bees 6 times at once. Got to the place where the waterfall was visible and took the marked path on the right but was apparently not the correct route. Ended at some very abrupt and steep end and was not courageous enough to proceed. Would love to go back and enjoy the pool and waterfall but with someone who knows where to go. Checked my recordings after and was definitely off the path although following the markers.

A great hike with a sweet reward at the end. However, the trail is intermingled amongst ATV trails and it is very easy to get lost, so pay attention to the map. No trail markings. Very little shade for most of the hike. The end of the hike is challenging but doable using the ropes. Make sure to bring a swimsuit to take a dip at the end, so refreshing!

Parked down the road from Leo Palace and walked down the truck/ATV trail, past the abandoned WII tank (which is pretty awesome). The decent into the valley was a relief after walking on the red clay for a couple miles. The final decline was a little step but not to bad with the assistance of ropes. Awesome waterfall and its deep enough to jump off a 25ft ledge into the pool.

The end of this hike is my favorite spot on earth. Its beautiful, there's plenty of shade after so much sun exposure and you can climb up and jump off of the waterfall and swim around to cool off. Watch the trail on the way back. there are a few spots where the correct trail is a smaller path that is hard to miss. If you find yourself hiking away from Leo Palace, double back.

Bring an extra set of shoes and socks. Leave them in your car for when your are done. So with the hike aspect not that difficult just follow the map and it will bring you to the stream bed for the upper part of the falls. just follow the right side and you will see the rope to help you. After you see the upper part of the falls as you make you're way back look to your left and will see markers they will lead you to an over grown trail that leads to the lower falls that you can swim in. As you make you're way out just go straight up the mountain and you will be back to the red clay. Definitely not the most precise map I've seen on this app. Definitely was an adventure.

Great little hike. Fairly easy for the first 90%, the last area near the falls I would recommend using the ropes and other aid equipment provided. The water is clear and there are a lot of fish to greet you.

Fun hike! Trail is marked with orange and white flagging tape past the old tank. A little muddy in areas, but overall very fun.

Dirt don't hurt. You will get muddy. the first portion is clay atv trail and easy to hike with a small water runoff section that has a couple pallets and logs that "almost" get you across without getting wet. If you step in be prepared to sink up to your knees. Once you pass the tank the elevation changes kick in and it can get steep and slick on the clay soil. It's an adventure! You encounter a small creek crossing with assist ropes. Shortly after that you encounter the steep descent down into the lower falls. There are several assist ropes and a couple different routes... none particularly easier than the other. Just pick a line and go. These are some of the most beautifully breathtaking falls. Jump in the water, rinse off and get dirty again on the way back.

Short easy hike, took about 45 minutes to get to the waterfall at a moderate walking pace. The swimming hole was great and I would definitely recommend this hike if your trying to go swimming.
