Wailuku, Hawaii Map

Amazing views! A nice little climb, but my 6 year old son was able to handle it with breaks.

Beautiful hike. A little tough for these out of shape 50+ year olds but we made it.

The original 1.1 mile trail is basically a walk in a hot open field. The only reason this is rated 5 stars is because the real hike is much more adventurous, challenging, and rewarding.

At the end of the 1.1 mile trail, keep going and make a right at every fork in the road. Go past the gate which says "keep out private property", and follow River Rd up until you hear rushing water. when you hear water, follow the water upstream until you find what looks like either an overgrown hiking trail, or a wide bunny trail. This is the path to follow. It becomes very difficult to follow at times and will feel like trail blazing, but the route is never impassable.

Trail keeps going for 2 days and an experienced backpacker may be able to make it the way. But I suggest finding a nice rest spot along the water, taking a dip, and heading back once you've had enough wilderness.

The top of the trail doesn't provide views significantly better than from lower points, but it was still a very enjoyable and somewhat challenging hike.

Great hike this morning!! More challenging than anticipated, but incredible views the entire route. The waterfalls are visible within the first stretch of the hike. Slightly muddy, so wear sturdy shoes. Took us about an hour to get to the peak, a bit shorter heading down.

This is the second time I've hiked this. Definitely go at the crack of dawn as it gets hot. Breathtaking views.
