Aloha! I do various guided hikes with photos on Oahu. I hike often/weekly. Hiked last weekend, heading out again this Saturday too. Feel free to check out some examples of photos on my instagram @mike.karas. You can message me there or at mikekarasphotography@gmail.com.

Super fun and exhilarating trek! Highly agree to do trail counter clockwise for the best experience. Great way to knock out some cardio and be rewarded with awesome sights. Watch your step as the trail narrows and plants try to trip your feet. Be careful! It does get dangerous. The valley has a bunch of mosquitos so bring repellent! Also don’t forget long pants and shirt or you’ll leave with cuts when the path gets overgrown at the top.

But enjoy!

This was fun and amazing. There were areas that were slippery and hard to climb but totally worth it.

Want to see a video about it and make sure it's the right hike for you, check: https://youtu.be/6QWJTPY0n9Y.

One of the coolest hikes that I have ever done. The first half is amazing. You're hiking by water falls and up them. I went on a day that turned rainy (when I checked the forecast it said, 20% chance and it rained on us a lot), and that made it less fun and we couldn't see anything. We ended up slipping and literally sliding on our buts down from the top. DO NOT GO ON A RAINY DAY. It's a better hike for the dry season, first for the views and second for safety.

So this is actually private property owned by the Board of Water Supply and if you are caught doing the hike you could get fined. Yes, the views are stunning, but BE CAREFUL! People have died on the hike before, and I talked to a firefighter medic who told me that she has personally had to rescue people from the hike with broken backs, legs, etc. Also, go early in the morning. The sun sets extremely fast, so if you start after noon you risk being caught out there in the dark, which is not something you will enjoy. We made this mistake, and it caused my husband to nearly fall over the edge of the third waterfall because he didn't see the edge and he wasn't being cautious. I caught him under his armpits, but the lower half of his body went over the edge.
