Muddy. Simple to follow. Park near lulumahu lot and walk down. Be respectful and pick up your trash.

Waterfall was beautiful, but be careful where you parked . Returned back to our car window busted and our belongings taken . Would park up the street in the parking lot by the highway NOT ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD.

HikingBugsGreat!

Amazing place where you can reach within 30min. We run into couple of people even though “closed”. Falls was pretty nice too! Parking is getting crowded again..

Once you get on the right trail to find the falls they are beautiful! Take the trail to the ruins (so cool!) and then go past them to find the falls!
