Amazing views, was able to view the falls from both the top and the bottom of the waterfall. Can be slippery and muddy!

Hiked but didn't swim. Really easy walk with some views of a farm initially and two falls. First one was more powerful than the second but good views all around. Lots of mosquitos so bring bug repellent!!

easy hike ..sometimes muddy. nice falls.

Great views but recent floods made it super muddy and slick.
High risk for falling, spraining an ankle or just landing the wrong way. Do not rely on rocks or tree branches when you have recent floods. Use common sense.
Though, if you watch your step and go slow it’s worth the walk. I would rate easy, and moderate in some areas due to mud.

Awsome jogging path. Ran the entire thing out and back. While watching the sun rise.

I liked this trail. Easy to moderate (depending on conditions can be slippery after rains). Some bugs & mud but that’s to be expected. Beautiful scenery! Waterfalls and streams make this hike a great reward for short distance. Definitely recommend.

thought we would hike this trail but it's really not much for hiking, great for biking, running or strolling, plenty of folks out today, all ages. keep in mind that lots of people are renting bikes and don't know good biking protocol, so keep an eye out for them.

the views are great, all along the coast, intermittent beach access, no real coverage so it can get hot.

Beautiful ‘jungle’ hike along an old logging road, which makes for a good trail. Muddy and slippery at parts but easily handled; your shoes will get covered in mud though! Giant trees, beautiful views and a wonderful view of the higher ridges in the distance all make this very worthwhile.

There is a downed tree near the start of the trail, but you can scramble over it fairly easily.

Great short hike, it is listed as easy but I went after a rain which I think it makes it more moderate of a hike, don’t be afraid of getting muddy.

My 10-year-old and I did this hike on a sunny afternoon following a morning down-pour. It was so muddy but that made it more fun for her. The views were so breathtaking and nobody else was out there which made for a peaceful hike.

Okay hike...found out last night this was the trail two tourists were brutally murdered on thirty years ago. Trip Advisor left that one out.

Beautiful trail. A little muddy but we had rain earlier in the day. Prepare to get muddy. There is a few places we have to weave through the trees. Did it with an 8 month old on my back just fine. At the falls there is a rope swing. Bring a towel if the weather is cooler.

Awesome hike, very pretty. We weren’t paying attention and totally missed the first falls and ended up at the second. We couldn’t figure how to get down to the bottom of the falls to the rope swing but asked a local and he showed us. Where it looks like it dead ends you climb up some rocks and trees on the right side of the trail to a higher trail. Once you walk about 50 feet you descend back down. Rope swing was cool, water felt great.

Just hiked this today with my 13 year old son. We cliff jumped about 40 feet down stream from the first falls on both sides of the stream. The jumping cliffs are about 10 feet high on the trail side and about 15-18 on the other side. I checked the depth before we jumped and the water was over 10 feet deep.

We then walked down to the second falls which are higher but there was no cliff jumping there - just the rope swing which also looked fun, but we didn’t do it. We went back to the first set of falls, jumped a few more times and ate the Subway sandwich we had packed. It was a great day we will both remember forever.

Really neat trail with beautiful views and waterfalls but is all private property and we were forced off.

Nice stroll after dinner.

Loved it, easy uphill hike but very muddy. Just plan to get muddy if it has rained. Amazing views and like others said, continue past picnic clearing at the top .5 miles and there is a little bridge and waterfall.

Two nice waterfalls. The first is a bit more dramatic. The first waterfall has a nice jump just below the main falls into about 8-9 ft of water, you then float down 100-150 ft and climb out on the right. The second fall has a nice overlook and a rope swing in the pond below the falls. Watch out for the submerged rock below the rope swing.

Also look for signs of wild pigs with small wallows.

Really good trail. It is kind of wet in the winter and there is mud all the way.

Amazing short hike to two waterfalls. Make sure to bring water shoes if you’re planning to jump.

Easy hike with nice photo ops and two waterfalls!

The trail head is just to the right of a person’s home; last house on the left before the off-shoulder Parking.
Tons of rain recently. The waterfall is FULL, and beware the last 25 feet of the trail is flooded, so you have to forge your own.

Nice hike in the woods to satisfying waterfall views. As is mentioned, use caution if it recently rained as the trail can get very slippery (hiking sticks very helpful).

Easy trail. It had not rained in a few days so the trail was pretty dry and easy to walk, but I can imagine it being a lot more slippery if it has recently rained. Great for groups with children! Lots of areas to swim or take a dip in the water.

Nice, fun, easy trail to some pretty awesome swimming holes and waterfalls! Trailhead isn't marked by gate anymore though, it's furthest to the left once you get to coordinates, there's a small opening to start of trail.

Great easy trail for the entire family, all ages! 2 waterfalls where you can cliff jump and swim around. Can be very slippery if it has recently rained!

Easy hike with two great water falls. Steam views and foliage is beautiful. If your so inclined, you can jump off the side of the first waterfall into the waters below.

Beautiful views and lush rainforest. Very muddy but manageable. Light moderate, the mud is the main challenge (great core workout). It’s ~2 miles out to the bridge that marks the connection to the Moelepe part of the trail. Worth the time and work.
