Please obey all posted signs. This trail is on government land, as evidenced by the numerous 'No Trespassing' signs and cameras along the trail. This is an easy hike down a gravel road to a beautiful waterfall with a swimming hole along the way.

Good hike for groups with various skill levels. The trail is wide but does have some steep grades. Wear good shoes. The falls were thick since it had recently rained. Some pics uploaded showing trail entrance and places throughout. Be respectful of the residential neighborhood.

Fairly easy, wide trail. Small waterfall at the top is fun to dunk your head in and the pool near the bottom is a great way to cool off.

Such a good hike!! We did it today and it rained (not too hard) on and off the entire time. Parking is along the side of the residential road. Please don’t park in front of any mail boxes or driveways, be mindful of people that live here and walk quietly to the trail head. Trail begins at the dead end of the road at the “do not enter, Federal property” sign. Go around the left side of the fence and follow the main gravel/dirt/mud road all the way to the falls. Don’t venture off the road onto any tiny side trails, most of them are monitored by cameras and don’t lead to the Hanauma falls. There is a swimming hole at a clearing to the left about half way to the falls. People jump in but it is monitored by cameras as well. There is another set of smaller falls to the left of the large Hanauma falls, or at least there is when it’s raining like today. Such a nice easy hike!

This is a beautiful hike! So many pretty plants and trees. The stream that runs along is beautiful too with a pond many swim in. The waterfall is beautiful and peaceful. Trail was well traveled and in pretty good shape. Would be muddy if raining.

Hiked yesterday. Perfect family friendly trail for hikers of nearly all levels. Brought two babies in front pack. Slight hill to get the cardio going but nothing too difficult or very long. Beautiful mountain and forest views. The waterfall was raging and beautiful. We stopped and took photos and it only took us about 2 hours. Great way to acclimate to the Hawaiian heat and temperatures without getting overtired or too hot.

Took this hike on Friday, February 23. Only a few other hikers were encountered. The falls were running strong. Highly recommend this hike for anyone looking for a 2 hour hike through some beautiful tropical forests.

Went on 13th after the rain - the road was a bit muddy but fine. Great dive into the waterfall - don’t make my mistake and bring towel with you, you’ll want to do it!

PS- I lost Sony lens cover on a trail today, if anyone finds it - please DM me in Instagram @birdinthesea or FB @denis.astakhov — I’ll pick it up for a reward

A short hike with a few steep hills. There was more people than I expected but it was a Saturday. The water was flowing a lot too, definitely one of my favorite waterfall hikes on the island.

Didn't encounter any hikers, probably since it was a weekday and it was rainy. The entire path is gravel/paved, making it a pretty easy and straightforward hike.

So fun! Water was really flowing on Sunday out of Hamama. Tried to find Waihe`e and was unsuccessful. There was no tape to guide us but I swear I could hear it!

Please be thoughtful to the neighbors. No loud music, don't block driveways or trash bins and please pack out what you bring in.

Swim in the swimming hole on the way back! It makes for a cool pleasant hike back out!

Nice hike with stream access and nice swimming holes, but be cautious. The trail is behind a locked gate protecting government private property. The houses in the neighborhood have double fences. Some fences are spiked. The people living on this street are not friendly. The trail itself has a bad feeling about it. We also saw meth heads hanging out in the late afternoon.
