A secluded and magical hike. You are hiking in one of the first areas of Hawaii settled by the Polynesians. The waterfall at the end of the hike (Moa'lua Falls) is one of the prettiest I've seen in all the Hawaiian Islands. It's a tall, two-tiered waterfall with strong flow and a large swimming hole at the bottom.

To hike this, you should book the cultural tour. It is on private land and I can tell you from experience the locals don't take too kindly to tourists who are not part of a tour group. Also, the falls will be a challenge to find without a guide, although I will say this GPS track is pretty spot on.

I would recommend a guided hike to the waterfall. There is so much history and cultural ways that should be observed and respected.
