Deceptively long hike for me and the kids. Took us four hours.

Probably the best hike I've ever been on. Be prepared for lots of overgrowth and unclear trail markings, mostly near the trailhead. Long pants are a must. Even a long sleeved shirt for certain portions. Absolutely worth it as the view was stunning and the trail was completely ours. Didn't pass anyone on the way out or the way back in. Humidity, the unmaintained trail, and the elevation loss/gain make this not for the first time hiker. Expect 4-5 hours at a moderate effort with time for viewing.

Completed twice, 2011 and 2013. One of our favorite hikes. Wear long pants if you do not want to get your legs cut up as others have mentioned. On a clear day you are rewarded with breathtaking views of the coast. Watch for helicopters below when you near the end. Watch weather prior to leaving as coming back in the rain is not fun (from experience. Do not think you can just walk up and complete; not for beginners. Start early end early and go get a drink.

neat trail, more truck trail than hiking though, rained a bit that day....

There are more trails in this area than Alltrails is showing us. I did a larger loop that included the Kumuwela Trail, which I started by Camp Slogget. Take a snapshot of the trail map at the park lodge (or buy one) for better details. Be sure to hit up the vistas just southeast of the waterfall!

Nice interpretive nature trail. Very easy. Many trees to identify.
