Used this trail from the small trailhead off the pali at the sharp curve. Hiked halfway to Maunawili Falls Connection to make it to the falls. Great hike, beautiful long mountain views. Falls is great with 10, 15, and 30 foot cliff jumping into small pool.

Once past the paved section (where the noise of the highway is distracting), turns out to be a nice hike. Mostly flat with some small elevation gains/loses. I stopped about halfway and did an out and back, ended up being 10.5 miles. Added to my list to do the entire trail as an out and back to make for a long day

I see that this hike is marked as Hard...the only factor that makes it hard is the length, the path itself is pretty easy / not dangerous, though may be muddy after it rains

Well defined track. Pretty easy all up. Just over 4.5 hours including a quick drop down to the falls and back. I did have good weather and no mud!
