Walking this trail, I felt like a dinosaur would appear any minute - very prehistoric looking terrain which was very interesting. Notice the man next the the GIANT tree in the first photo. It was raining just enough to make the trail VERY slippery. As...More

Ok so here’s the deal. Find a spot and try not to slip and die in the mud. The first falls is nice. It’s not a huge falls but it’s beautiful. You can enter the water here. Be warned getting back up requires extreme caution...More

The trailhead was a little hard to find. Its in a residential neighborhood, you park on the street and look for a small trail that's hard to see if you're not really looking hard. The trail itself was muddy and a little slippery, but its...More

This trail is not State maintained, but easy to moderate terrain. The trail starts on Kapahi Road, you’ll see cars parked, & a power poll with a “ quiet” sign: that’s your start. At 0.2 miles is the first waterfalls & swimming pool. Trail continues...More

Decided to hike the trail after rough weather at Ke’e Beach sent us away. Admittedly, we were not preloaded for a hike wearing only flip flops. Since the path was pretty dry there were only a couple of spots that were slippery. My kids had...More

We visited one afternoon after it had rained all morning. The trail was quite muddy and it made the trip that much more adventurous. The first waterfall was about 20 minutes in and was OK. We decide to proceed onto to the second falls. This...More

It was December when we hiked so it was a little muddy and slippery in spots but overall an easy hike to find 2 beautiful falls! You'll see the first falls about 1/2 mile in and then the second falls are about 1.5 miles from...More

It took us a little bit of time to find it. The best thing to do is Google Maps with any sort of guide on your phone from the internet. The “red gate” that so many websites describe is so overgrown by bushes and trees...More

This hike isn’t very long but there is a lot of climbing over and under fallen trees. It can also be very slippery descending to the two different falls, but it is worth it. Park by the side of Kapahi road, and bring mosquito repellent.

You were at the correct place but the dirt trail leading to the river and falls is about .25 miles on the left before the private dirt road. It's more of a skinny dirt foot path. It's marked by a electric pole that says... More
