This was a challenging trail for me because some stretches were steep. I had an injured knee and was wary of that but I took it slowly and made it to the waterfall. Glad I persisted and felt I had conquered.

The view of the waterfall was definitely worth the hike. A bit steep and slippery at times as well as crowded. This is a popular hike! Our four kids ages ten and younger did great.

We hiked up to see the waterfall but it was just a trickle during that time of the year. The hike wasn't bad even with a bum knee if you take your time.

We just completed the hike which is 1.6 miles return on June 14, 2017. It had been rainy in the area so the falls were pretty large. Although people bring swimsuits to wear and swim, we read the online sources and it was confirmed by...More

This is a great hike to see a waterfall only minutes from the city. However, the trail is very busy. You aren't supposed to go in the falls; however, many people still do. I would go early to beat the crowds as there were many...More

We parked at the $5 lot near the entrance. The trip from there to the falls is about 1 mile each way. For the most park the hike is a walk on larger gravel. Toward the top it is a lot more dirt, roots and...More

People swim in this water fall and don't pay attention to any warnings. In Hawaii you should never swim in a water fall because of Leptospirosis. Look it up, it's in all of the water. I would never risk it. Just enjoy the... More

Yes it is possible with a youngster. May be a few little spots that a little more care needs to be taken. Just be mindful of the people behind you and let them pass. Also don't do if it has rained as there are some slippery... More
