Nice short hike .. love the bamboo forest and the waterfall at end of trail, did this the other day and have done it around three years ago.. found they blocked off area at end where you used to be able to walk to waterfall and swim .. still ok and very nice .. easy in and out ..
This is by far one of the most amazing trails I have ever hiked. It's fairly easy and you're taken along a trail featuring waterfalls and an insanely gorgeous bamboo forest. It's about 1.5 hours if you stop to take pictures and sight see. If you're in Hana it's a MUST SEE.. just bring water!
with a rating of easy, I assumed it would be, well, easy. It isn't that it's treacherous but with the dirt it can be very slippery and dangerous. I saw many people turn around rather than risk it and I myself ended up sliding down in one spot. It was dry when we went and I would definitely NOT advise going when it's raining. Also, make sure to wear good footwear, flip flops could definitely be your downfall (literally) here. I would say this was a step up from easy as many people we passed wouldn't even attempt to go past the first stop.
This is a nice hike. That being said, it is a solid 4 miles, not 3.5 as the app says. Make sure to get there with enough sunlight left. It's going to take you at least an hour to get to the falls if you are stopping to occasionally take pics, then there is the hike back. Bamboo forest is cool but I would say that it doesn't compare to Manoa falls in Oahu. At the end of the trail is a large, very tall, waterfall which is a great site. Signs are posted not to go further but we did see an occasional person go and swim in the pool.
Be sure to bring water and stay hydrated. It is mostly up hill/up stairs for most of the way there. There are steps, steps, and then more steps.
Did this yesterday. The hike up took us an hour and 20 minutes because we stopped to look around and take photos. Coming back down was about 40 minutes. It's a very easy hike and worthwhile. The bamboo forest was a beautiful sight. You will get attacked by mosquitoes though!!
