Definitely a challenge to find the first part of the trail after entering through the gate.

Not a great path. Hard to follow which makes it slow going and tons of branches in the way.

Very easy to get lost on this trail due to overgrowth and fallen trees. For me, it was a gem in the rough, with lots of rough. After crossing the Pali and entering the gate in the fence, you will hit a stream bed after about .25 miles, the stream was dry when I went. Don’t cross the stream bed! Stay on the south side and follow it west and you will find a nice and easy path. I crossed the stream bed and wasted so much time and energy looking/scrambling for a path that didn’t exist. The Sketchy Tunnel is at about my 1.5 mile mark and can be intimidating if you are solo as it is a dark tunnel, easily a football field in length, maybe longer. The muck and mud did go a few inches above my ankles and I had to carry puppy through it as she wanted nothing to do with it. Once through, I was glad I did it. After the tunnel your are almost immediately at the first waterfall, which is pretty. The 2nd waterfall is not much further and was really impressive. I spent a good amount of effort trying to find the path beyond the 2nd waterfall. I found some markings and made it up a good number of “shoelace” ropes but the trail was getting harder and harder to follow and I had spent much more time than I had expected trying to find my way earlier in the trail. The vertical climb was starting to get to be a bit much for puppy. I’ll need to go back and do some more exploring, I’ll feel more confident next time knowing the first part of the trail.

This was an overall good experience. We parked at the Lulumahu Falls parking lot, ran across the Pali, and went through the gate. The beginning of the trail is difficult to navigate because it is poorly marked and overgrown, but I downloaded the map ahead of time & once we found the trail it was fine. Definitely wear bug spray. It was very muddy, as to be expected after heavy rains, but worth it for the waterfalls! We went up to the left of the tunnel on the way in for the view & through the tunnel on the way back. The mud in the tunnel was about halfway up my shins and it took 5 minutes to walk through. Cool experience and definitely faster than going around. Would like to do this trail again with hiking boots instead of hiking sneakers & would start earlier so that we could hike further for more waterfalls. Overall worth the trip but wouldn’t recommend for beginners or those without proper footwear.

It was a good trail... muddy but not as bad as some... trail is confusing at the beginning just keep left and do t criss the ravine. Trial stays left of it on the way up. Fun and not crowdedness all. Only went to first waterfall.

For some reason finding trail heads here is not my forté. Crossing the Pali wasn't that bad.. Parked at the other falls parking lot. Anyway like everyone else has said its muddy and not well marked. We used the all trails map about every 5 minutes or so in the beginning. For most the hike you are following next to a creek bed. The trail had A LOT of down trees and we used the bed to avoid some of them. We only made it to the 2nd fall like most other people. Want to come back with a bigger group of people than just my husband and I. We wore swim suits, shorts, and rain jacket. We chose to go through the tunnel first and I made the mistake of saying oh this isn't that muddy and then in the middle we hit ankle deep wet mud. lol. I still wouldn't skip the tunnel bc by then your shoes are probably goners anyway. We washed off at the falls then chose to go up and around the tunnel on the way back. I dont think if it were any more wet we could of navigated it. its very steep and we slipped a couple times but caught ourselves or each other before falling down the mountain. lol. All in All would go back! the tree tunnel thing is really cool and the tunnel itself is a unique touch. BRING BUG SPRAY. we used it probably more than 6 times ha

The beginning of the trail is pretty easy to the first waterfall. The second one is straight past that . I climbed mostly over the riverbed to get to that one, but If do you want to go to the third or more waterfalls you have to go back up and around . that part is a little sketchy there are so many trees that have fallen over since the last time I’ve done this hike and it was only a couple months ago so the trail its not as clear some parts you have to really pay attention not much space to walk . The pink markers are good for the first 2 waterfalls then the orange for the rest . Went to the top of the 3rd waterfall . I’m sure there are a lot more but depends on rain .

Will get muddy. If you want views go up and around and not in the creepy tunnel. Views were great! We took the tunnel on the way back all the way through, no spiders but muddy haha loved it! And be prepared to climb waterfall shelves, some have ropes for help, some not. Great hike!

Download the Maps beforehand. It's easy to get off trail. Magnificent water falls, but no real views.

We came on a rainy day and only made it up to the first waterfall since we ran outta time. Hike was basically easy in the beginning until the other half is more incline but not as bad as I thought. Planning to go back in a couple weeks to finish the trail with my whole hike group but for now I’ll take this hike than lulumahu falls since it’s crowded while this hike is less known much
