This is a well-traveled trail by both locals and tourists alike, so if you are looking to get away from humanity, this isn't for you. You drive into a residential neighborhood and park along the edge of the road. The day we were there I...More

Follow the directions in one of the reviews here. Very helpful. It's a short hike to a pretty waterfall and stream. Not easy to get in if you want to swim, but good for pictures and a walk.

Nice hike down to a great Falls and nice swimming hole. They say to bring your bug spray but we had no bug encounters. Are wild strawberry guava on the hike back.

This was my favorite waterfall and hike, but make sure you enter the hike in the correct spot, which is right near a tan colored house (you will clearly see opening around large grasses). The first waterfall is nice for younger children because they can...More

This hike is well worth the effort. Start early and bring plenty of water. The first leg of the hike is to the beach about 2 miles of trail up and down but not difficult with the right shoes. The views of the Ka Pali...More

Came up here on a day of seeing waterfalls. The wife and kids were tired and decided to nap in the car, but I took the short hike (2 miles round trip) to see both falls. The first falls is probably about 1/3 mile in,...More
