very beautiful hike, just bring bug spray. mostly shady hike, could be muddy at times so use shoes you don't mind getting dirty.

This is the quintessential "Hawaii waterfall" hike. A little crowded on weekends so time it appropriately.

Killer hike. Going down wasn't to bad as it was all downhill, coming back up was a different story I died! The falls had a little trickle and the pond was deep and cold, not the cleanest of ponds so swim at your own risk. Definitely more than I expected.

Beautiful trail. I definitely wouldn't bring my kids on this hike as some areas were challenging and slick but a fun hike for sure.

Very fun trail! I was glad there were other people hiking because you don't feel like you're going the right way. The footing was a little rough toward the end, but it was worth it! Probably it a trail for little keiki. My German Shepherd did better than I did, but I would not recommend it for small dogs unless you plan to carry them a bit. I would do this hike again (even though my calves are burning from the uphill on the way back!).
