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.

There are "No Trespassing" signs, but out of the dozens of times I have done this trail, I have never gotten in any sort of trouble. One time I even passed a giant party of 30+ people at the swimming hole in the beginning with a bunch of locals and their trucks. I take my dog on this all the time, never leashed. Slippery during the rain. Keep going for Waihe'e Falls.

Pretty easy hike to the falls. This hike is on government property. Please be respectful and quiet while in this neighborhood. I was with a group and we also able to find Waihe’e Falls.

Easy hike. There was a 5 year old kid at the falls. Decent falls.

Well-groomed trail with a nice waterfall at the end. Trail gets a little slick during rain.
Mosquitos weren’t as bad as other reviews lead me to believe.

Had a blast! Did this in the light rain which was fun. Bring water shoes and something to swim in. The waterfall at the end makes for some great photo ops. There is a “pool” you can swim in and set up a fire for a party as well. Good times ya

Nice little hike, easy to navigate since most of the trail is paved or well-traversed. It’s a little sketchy because there’s “No Trespassing” signs everywhere, but a local who lives in the neighborhood said everyone goes anyways. We had great weather, but as soon as we left it looked like the rain clouds were rolling in. Trails could get slippery very fast!

FYI - A local resident put a self-serve vending machine in their front yard, so if you forgot a drink, seek that out!

Great easy trail with an amazing waterfall at the end! Second half was a little steep but nothing a hiking newbie couldn’t handle. It is on private property but as long as you’re respectful it isn’t a problem.

Not too difficult, but definitely you will need a hiking boots. Gets slippery after the rain. No scenic views, since you are going through the woods. However the waterfall is amazing.

First half of the hike is easy and the hills get relatively steep for the second half. The waterfall is worth the trek.

There are two main falls in this area- Hamama and Waihe’e. Hamama is quite straight forward to get to as it is at the end of the trail. To get to Waihe’e, look for a flat area followed by a large banyan tree on the right. Traverse down to the right and cross the stream.. There you will see a trail to the right that follows the stream then up and over a small ridge till you hit Waihe’e Falls. You can also climb to its upper falls.

This was a pretty cool hike. We did this with the little guys (7 & 4) in slippas with ease. The pool is cool but if it’s crowded just go a few more steps up the trail to the bridge and get in there. Not as deep but just as refreshing. The waterfall was worth the hike. Go early to ensure you have some time to yourself. It gets pretty crowded midday. Nice way to spend a Sunday with ohana!!

Awesome place and with a nice swimming area. Unfortunately I lost my knock off go pro there and am more concerned with losing all the great pictures I took than the camera itself. So if anyone finds it u are more than welcome to keep the camera I just want the memory card. (contour camera)

Probably my favorite waterfall on island. The pool at the beginning of the trail is so clear and refreshing. The hike up is not very shaded. It is a great hike for experienced children hikers.

Awesome little hike, the falls is awesome and very unique, BUT, the real treasure comes early in the hike as there is a nice little pond to swim in.

Easy, but on rainy days might get too muddy and slippery. Beautiful and short trail with a nice waterfall at the end. Great for families and pets, too.

Nice short hike with a good scenic photo opp and decent water falls, if you soon after a rain. Took my five year old and she didn't have any issues. Hard gravel pack on entire trail.

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.
