This hike is fairly easy but so beautiful. I could sit and look at the lighthouse with the ocean all day. Although next time I do this hike, I plan to do it during the sunrise.

Great hike. Remember to bring water and snacks as there are no facilities. If you're new to hiking like me, this one will wear you out so be prepared.

It's pretty, however, it is very easy and crowded.

Hike was pretty miserable overall. The decent down isn't bad but the "trail" too the waterfall is slippery and possible ankle tweakers. The falls were dry today so that was a bit anti climatic. The next half of the trail is rough, the accent is long and exhausting, great views but not well maintained. Very steep and could be a danger too younger or in experienced hikers.

Would not hike again.

Very nice hike

Beautiful scenery but a super short & easy trail!

We love this trail! the views are awesome especially during the "winter" when the whales are out. We take our puppy out there as much a possible.

Beautiful! Muddy, slow scrambles most of the way, awesome pay-off at the falls. Get there early, parking seems limited. There's also a market on 10th Ave very close by the trailhead if needed.

Very nice short hike

Pretty hike, but I think I missed a turn to go up to Ridge line. Ended at 2600ft and at a point where I would have to go way down a ridge to climb up the huge final hill. Not being able to even see where the trail even went up, I guess I screwed up. From there I could clearly see the Moanalua trail with folks going up to the Ridge. There was one sign I pass saying "To Road Marker 12" and I wonder if that was the way to go. Not sure. Wonder if it is crossover. Hmmm

Did 7.5 Round Trip, up to 2600ft

3L water good and snacks need for energy

Bees Bees Bees.
Bees as you start trail near neighborhood, second batch at the left turn to side road, and third batch is at the 3.25 ish in a tree on right side of narrow trail. There is a trail to get around it if you back up. Early morning they weren't out, but when the sun shines, look out. Made the return walk exciting.
