We have done this twice, both times during the rainy season, so it's a muddy, wet, beautiful, adventure. The challenge of how muddy you are getting and how many times you slip makes it fun. The falls at the top are breathtaking. It's great for...More

The walk starts in a residential neighborhood, but quickly becomes a rainforest hike. We went after some light rains and much of the trail became very nuddy, slick, and difficult. We had a ton of fun figuring out how to get through the mud and...More

The hike is very muddy and will take you longer if you try and avoid the mud. Which you can't. So suck it up and just go for it. I avoided the mud and therefore the hike felt neverending. There are a lot of mosquitos,...More

This is a long, slippery, muddy and moderately difficult hike. The trail is not always clearly marked. It took our group about 2 hours to get to the waterfall. The waterfall itself is only about 10 feet tall, but it's deep and you can do...More

Lots of roots choke this trail and it gets a little claustrophobic near the end. The falls aren’t huge and lagoon was muddy but hike didn’t lack adventure. Got directions in Oahu Trailblazer

I've hiked several places in the US and this was the muddiest hike I've ever done. Wearing water shoes or sturdy hiking boots is a good idea. Maybe even rain boots. There were slippery places throughout and some steep sections as well. I was in...More

The truly was the hardest and work hike ever. Do not go here unless you’re prepared to be extremely muddy the entire time and in danger due to slippery and steep conditions. We were so excited to do a nice, long hike to the falls,...More

Like others have said already, this trail is extremely muddy! I wouldn’t suggest wearing anything you don’t want getting dirty. I would also suggest bringing bug repellent as misquotes tend to thrive here. This is a great hike for hikers of all skill level, though...More

If you like to slip & slide on mud for over two hours and risk getting injured to see a not really impressive waterfall surrounded by teenagers jumping then this is your hike. Seriously, my wife and son, who are both in great shape, were...More

It took a little over an hour each way, plus the time we spent at the falls. I think we were there about 4-5 hours total. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes that don't come off easy - is very muddy.

Like everyone has said, be cautious of open wounds when trekking in the creeks and swimming at the water falls.
