Pretty sweet trail. Very fun especially crossing the river. The first waterfall is really cool but the second smaller one is awesome with the little swimming hole. Didn’t venture past that but was really fun up until that point.

Amazing wonderland vibe if you are new to the concept of a bamboo forest. Hana Highway was a fun mash, we stopped for fresh delicious Poke on the way at a gift shop with a lunch window (local and small scale but well done). The slopes of the Bamboo Forest trail were slick down to the creek, but it was still fun and worth doing if you don’t mind getting soaked. We kept it quick for risk of mountain flash flooding but it was still one of my favorite woodlands I’ve met so far.

Short, but NOT an easy hike. Even on dry days, the rocks are very slippery.

My daughter & I did this trail in Nov '17. There are 4 water falls & getting to the 3rd & 4th one was a real obstacle course w/ climing up muddy slippery rocks by holding on to bamboo, on another rock face we climbed a ladder someone has left in place & once on the top step, use the ropes to climb the rest of the way. Jumping boulders, & swimming over to the 4th fall. The adventure was a high light of our trip. We would definitely do it again!!

This trail is not easy. You have to go down a steep path then wade across a river. Dress appropriately

We did this trail on our honeymoon and got lost. There were two trails after you cross the rocky riverbed and one takes you up a huge climb and leads to nowhere the second takes you to the waterfalls. We did love the rope ladders we had to climb to see waterfalls 3 and 4 once we found our way to the right trail. Regardless we still had a good time

so pretty! I felt like we were searching for lost treasure lol. Be prepared to get your feet submerged into water (about up to your knees) crossing a stream.

Great hike. Water levels are high right now but you can still make it across the river.
