Ridge Trail, great views of windward shore, Hawaiian flora, waterfall and swim As Poohaili St. bears left walk through (or around) the second gate and continue on dirt road. Continue past taro fields on the left and a green pump house on the right. Go across a cement bridge to a signed intersection with trail. Turn left and up through a yellow gate. Climb along the broad ridge pass a wooden post gate connected to a barbed wire fence. The road follows a fence line then curves left to a junction. Turn right up the eroded path. At an open flat area keep right uphill on a very eroded section of the trail. Continue on trail through a grove of Cook Pines. Descend briefly then climb along the left side of the ridge to a junction. Turn right then descend to a waterfall/swimming hole (Left continues to summit). The waterfall is the turn around point.

Beautiful hike through a variety of foliage and trail types. Cool pool to swim in at the base of the small waterfall.

Very cool trail. The trail head area is kind of sketch, and we were a bit apprehensive about leaving our rental car near the playing fields, but everything was fine. Definitely worth the 4 mile-in trek to reach the waterfall and go for a dip. Ultimate refreshment!

Outstanding hike. Glad we wore our boots to tackle mud and some of the terrain. Left car at field/park just outside of park which was recommended by a local. Didn't encounter bugs like others mentioned. Agreed that the falls aren't remarkable - but we were happy to to cool off there. Island views are absolutely stunning. It took us 5 hours - but that includes a good stop at the falls and a few others for views.
