Loved it! Lots of changes in vegetation. Beautiful views up valleys when you reached the ridgeline.
3.5 stars. I would rate this easy-moderate because of the mud and elevation change. First hike in Hawaii. I wish there was a better view of the ocean for a picture but we caught glimpses thru the trees. The songbirds were a delight. We parked at the ocean and walked up since there is no parking allowed near the trailhead. Practiced Leave No Trace by packing out other's trash
Loved the foliage diversity and views. And always love a trail that my dog can join me on!
Very peaceful hike. Did it with my 10 month old, baby wearing and my dachshund.
nasty mosquitoes at the start, but once you get above the river they lose interest. I love the varying landscape. great hike
Muddy in parts, but I did it in tennis shoes (though they ended up covered in mud). I'm usually a mosquito magnet but didn't have any spray and only got one bite. I went clockwise, beautiful views on the way down. Parts of the trail are covered with soft, springy pine needles that were great to hike on. I saw footsteps but didn't see anyone on the trail. Great birdsong and trees! Don't do this for the waterfalls (they're pretty small) but otherwise a very pretty hike.
First hike in Hawaii. Easy trail, slightly muddy but great views.
it was my first hike. it was fun and beautiful. a little muddy. beautiful mountain views.
It was a bit muddy and slippery in spots which made for a more difficult hike. But it was very serene and only saw 4 others the entire loop. Will definitely come back to the area again!
