The falls are nice, if the water is clear, but, this is not a hike. It is a walk from the parking lot. Good for people who don't hike but want to see waterfalls.

Beautiful falls ! You just need to park the car and enjoy them ! You should go around 9am because the sun rises just at the good spot to see rainbows !

Gorgeous, pungent white ginger lines the trail up to the top of the falls. Super easy to navigate. Make sure to bring reef shoes, and a bathing suit so you can wade in the pools at the top of the falls. I was bummed that I wasn't prepared.

beautiful falls,go off trail and you'll find a spot were you can go swimming,water had deep spot as well as many sallow spot.if you do go off trail there's another wonderful water full behind but you have to cross the water and climb the rock to see it.a vine area some locals were swinging off of to the water.

Not a hike but still definitely worth going. Short walk to the top where you can stand on top of the waterfall. In addition to the waterfall there were awesome trees.

Really just a pretty picture with a short walk from be parking lot to the edge of the waterfall. It's not a hike and not even the best waterfall I've seen in Hawaii.

Unfortunately was only able to view the waterfall. Didn't have enough time explore the whole trail, but great view!
