Kaneohe, Hawaii Map

Easy hike with places to jump in the stream.

Did this trail yesterday with some friends. The small loop .04 mile trail is very beautiful, it takes you thru very big pines, a bamboo grove and wild flowers. At the first look out point you take great pictures of Kaneohe bay. The second look out point offers a better view of the Kailua side and a chance of a panoramic view of Kaneohe and Kailua. To get to the second point is a little challenging. There are plenty of ropes and roots to help with the climb. This trail will take you along the ridge towards the Kailua quarry. We didn’t go past the antenna tower. There is limited parking at the trail head, be a good steward and park properly. Also, be mind-full of the neighbors minimize your noise foot print.

Awesome waterfall!

Beautiful waterfall. I'm not a strong hiker but this was a manageable but good cardio workout

It was good hike, it easy but gave you a sweat! And the end state of the hike is pretty.

Took this hike on Friday, February 23. Only a few other hikers were encountered. The falls were running strong. Highly recommend this hike for anyone looking for a 2 hour hike through some beautiful tropical forests.

Nicely maintained gardens, although it was wet after recent storms it was still educational and fun. Certainly, would go back and bring others.

Unique garden trail but path was blocked due to recent storms. It was in the process of being cleaned up as sections were roped off, so give it a few days.

Crazy difficult during or after a heavy rain. Easy fair weather hike with nice sunrise view at the pillbox.

Went on 13th after the rain - the road was a bit muddy but fine. Great dive into the waterfall - don’t make my mistake and bring towel with you, you’ll want to do it!

PS- I lost Sony lens cover on a trail today, if anyone finds it - please DM me in Instagram @birdinthesea or FB @denis.astakhov — I’ll pick it up for a reward

A short hike with a few steep hills. There was more people than I expected but it was a Saturday. The water was flowing a lot too, definitely one of my favorite waterfall hikes on the island.

2/10/2018-Started about 0817 and came across 9 groups/solo hikers. The weather was good but hazy and the ground was a little sticky but not super slick. View at the end was awesome and enjoyed seeing all the different blues of Kaneohe Bay!

Didn't encounter any hikers, probably since it was a weekday and it was rainy. The entire path is gravel/paved, making it a pretty easy and straightforward hike.

Easily one of the most peaceful and beautiful getaways on the island.

Nice short hike, cool bunker hangout at the end.

So fun! Water was really flowing on Sunday out of Hamama. Tried to find Waihe`e and was unsuccessful. There was no tape to guide us but I swear I could hear it!

Please be thoughtful to the neighbors. No loud music, don't block driveways or trash bins and please pack out what you bring in.

Swim in the swimming hole on the way back! It makes for a cool pleasant hike back out!

Good hike !

Short, but awesome view

Easy hike. The additional hike up the ridge is fun and was accomplished by a 12 and 8 year old.

Great for dogs, kids, trail running, but is VERY crowded, especially on weekends and holidays.

the up hill, was up hill.

Nice little trail to waterfall. Gets prettier as you go. Go to end of road, cut around fence to left. Hike. Please carry in carry out.

short but views are great

This is not a hike, it is more of a walk. There are a few nice views along the lake but nothing really spectacular. Half of the trail is on the paved road that leads through the park, and cars kept driving by. That’s why I gave the trail low rating. It’s hard to enjoy nature if you have to look out for cars. All in all an easy walk even for younger kids, if you have to push a stroller you get a little workout because some stretches go a little uphill but it’s not too bad.

We parked in Hui Iwa Street (turn in where the Mc Donald’s is) and walked along the main road to the trail head. ( about 5 mins walk) Trail Head has a yellow marker. Loved this hike, not scary at all. I walked the trail with my 7 and 10 year old, took us about two hours with a nice break at the bunkers. View is spectacular. Always stay on the wide main path, there are no turns, you just walk straight. Didn’t see the bees on the way up but on the way down they must have been disturbed by people going by, they were swarming. Be careful! Hike is a nice mix of stroll and exercise and is well traveled. Don’t go after rain, first part is red dirt and steep hill which will get slimy after rain.

Great hike, but definitely tough in some spots. After it’s rained, the bottom is very slick. The views were amazing. When we got to the top, the peaceful vibes were ruined by some young kids blasting music on a portable speaker which was also blaring their notifications. Pretty infuriating. We finally had to ask them to turn it off. They did for a few minutes, long enough for us to capture some videos. Over all, I had a great time and can’t believe I saw those views. I just ask fellow hikers to please be considerate and think of others when it comes to the music, especially when it’s at the the goal of the hike.
