Love this one. Muddy and buggy but so much fun

More an easy hike instead of moderate, had large group of kids ages between 4 and 9 and they had no problem walking, some even in slippers although I would not recommend that. Nice little waterfall, bring bug spray!

Great hike for children my 3 year old was able to hike the whole way tot he waterfall unassisted. Needed hand holding on the way back down because of the mud. Lots of mosquitoes so bug spray is a must. Recommend to anyone with children who wants to get them out for a quick afternoon adventure.

I’d say easy over moderate. Very nice little waterfall though.

Very nice hike. Easy and short enough for my 3 and 6 year olds. It was muddy in places, so take a bag for your shoes...unless you don't mind getting your car muddy.

Lots of mosquitoes so don't forget the bug spray!

Wonderful hike! Great in the morning got there around 8 took about an hour to the top and back. We got lost twice. When driving to the trailhead it seems like your going to the Pali golf course and the First Presbyterian Church. Parking at the church is free and easy to get to the trail take the trail on the left with the chain. The reason we got lost is because we made it to the graffitied water tower if you make it there turn around. There is a trail up a hill to the left before the water tower take this to the big tree and make a right there is an arrow. Not too far after the tree to get to the beautiful falls. It does gets muddy in spots and a walking stick is very helpful have fun and be safe!

Out of the short hikes I have done on the island, this one is my favorite. The waterfall is awesome! The path wasn’t even too muddy. We parked at the Koolau Conference Center to get to the trailhead.

The reviews on this site were extremely helpful in navigating the trail. When you get the graffiti tower look to the left for the trail. Once you hit the cobblestone path, keep going until you see a large tree on your right with an arrow carved into it, pointing right to the falls. Enjoy!

Wonderful short hike with a great reward. When you get to the graffitied tower look to your left. That’s where the trail starts... eventually the trail becomes cobblestoned. After around 7 mins you’ll come to big tree in your right. Has an arrow carved in. Make a right.

I did get also confused and ended up hiking an extra half of mile in a very hard route . Extra exercise :) . Very nice and short hike and good for the family . Plenty of parking on a Sunday afternoon . We saw a few other hikers which is always nice .

yup we miss that right turn by the big tree. But it was okay. It wasn’t just us. Six other people missed it too

The trail is very poorly marked. You have to make a right turn off of the cobblestone portion towards the beginning of the hike. If you miss the turn and try to go by the maps on here you will get lost like we did. A leisurely hike in the woods turned into an 4 mile uphill jungle excursion with my 65 y/o parents.
So be very careful not to miss the right turn at the big tree and it should be a good time.

Very pretty lookout over the city by the waterfall. When you get to the graffitied water tower go left up the path (not around the tower). A little ways up the cobble stone you need to take a right. There’s a tree with a small carved arrow.

Beautiful little hike. Best part is the walk to the falls and seeing all the beautiful trees. The waterfall itself didn't blow anyone away but it was a really short and sweet hike. Good for babywearing.

Nice easy hike with kids. Nice guy on the trail advised us to ensure and take the first trail on the right while on the rock path. Great advice.

Nice short hike, the falls won't blow you away but hiking anywhere in Hawaii nei is always an awesome time.
