Fun little swim at the end.

Easy but nice for everyone.

Amazing view. Short and worth it.

The view was beautiful. Halfway up it started to rain, therefore the trail became more slippery and muddy. My husband and I decided to take the kids and it was a wonderful family experience for us.

I’m not sure who writes the descriptions for the trails but here is my version for this one..... This is a great hike down into the canyon. The trail is steep and in many places washed out due to erosion but still very navigable. You start out very exposed for the first 1.5mi, then enter dense woods for the last mile to the river/campground. If you hike further you can go south to the old abandoned hydro damn. The trail actually continues all the way into the town of Waimea. We went past the power plant about 1.5mi before turning around. The description says 11.4mi but not sure what landmark the turn around would be. I suggest the power plant. There is also 10 river crossings that you will do twice. Trekking poles served to be very handy. We saw many frogs and several chickens, some goats and birds. This is truly like descending into the Grand Canyon on a smaller scale. Well worth the effort.

Great hike with a breathtaking view !

Would call this more of a walk than a hike, one definitely for the family and different abilities :)
We took some really beautiful photos here, and the waterfall at the end is great! Definitely worth a visit and doesn’t take up too much of your time. It rained when we was there which made some parts a tiny bit slippery but wear trainers and you’ll be absolutely fine :)

Not as dog friendly as I expected. A few homeless people kinda politely asked us to not be there with our kids.

Wouldn't recommend.

AMAZING trail. A little on the wet, muddy and slippery slide though, so wear your hiking boots. Beware of the tree roots and slippery rock surfaces. The view is brilliant — well worth it!

What an amazing view. Worth the trip. As far as difficulty depends who's eyes your looking out. I'm 62 wife 60 generally good health for our age. Going out not bad. Coming back for us a little different story. Just have to take your time and rest if you need it. Especially the last climb that you know is coming. Our daughter and fiancé went with us and are in early 30's and hikers so like other reviews no problem.Once again when you get out on that ridge and see the Napoli Coast it's worth every step

My first time trying a moderate leveled hike! It was great. Parking isn't very ideal seeing as it's out on a busy road in front of people's houses. I would definitely recommend to get there the earlier the better. And definitely DEFINITELY bring actual hiking shoes!!! My boyfriend and I were wearing nikes and I can't count how many times we slipped and fell because of how muddy it was. We brought our 1 year old golden retriever and it was the perfect outing for her!! Also, make sure you wear a swimsuit under your clothes! After the long hike you'll be happy you stopped and swam in the waterfall before heading back. We arrived at noon and finished up just around 4.
