Fact. You CAN do this hike without the tour guide. Fact. You may also get attacked by dogs. IF you decide to do it on your own, the beginning is super confusing, but the GPS from this app is spot on.

A 2fur, great guided hike with a contextual narrative discussion of the history of Molokai and particularly the trail. Then a nice hike, not too hard along a trail that is maintained until reaching the river /waterfall area. Here it's nothing but bouldering. Two river crosses earlier had this but not to the degree of the falls. Waterfall is lush and thick with cool crisp water. The hike should be seriously considered for those that are shakey on their footing. Make sure to check out the guided tour website since the land is private.

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.
