Awesome hike that wasn't too terribly difficult. Would rate it as easy-moderate, depending on your ability to go up incline. Gorgeous views and a lot of shade so perfect for the afternoon when Diamondhead is too hot.

I took the local bus service from near Waikiki to the falls which was easy so absolutely no need to hire a tour to do this hike. The trail is extremely muddy so wear proper shoes. The walk up is a bit difficult at times...More

We left the hotel in Waikiki at 7am to find a bus on Waikiki Beach but didn't succeed. Took a taxi for $25 which was very straight forward. Walked about 30-40 minutes to the waterfall, had a swim underneath the waterfall (cold at first but...More

First time we went we took the bus, which drops you off at the bottom of the hill. This time we had the kids (8-15 years) and a rental car. There is a $5 parking fee. Bring old sneakers/hiking shoes, bug spray, water, and wipes/old...More

One of the best hikes we went on. It is strenuous, slick, a bit muddy, but worth it!! The hike to the falls was beautiful. Do not swim there, there are leeches in the water!!! Just view and obey the warning signs, you'll be fine.

These waterfall are close to Waikiki therefore, it gets tons of visitors. However, we got there by 9am and we almost had the falls to ourselves. There is a parking lot close to the entrance to the trail and it's $5. The hike is very...More

We booked a tour and spent money on something that could be done on your own. We had a rental car and had to pay to park (as everyone does). We hiked a path to the waterfall and then turned around and hiked back. The...More

Firstly, the trail is not clearly marked: specifically the starting point to the hike. When you arrive there's an option to go left towards the restaurant and there's an option to go right which leads to a pave road. I would suggest parking in the...More

Technically, NO. Do people go swimming (I would call it more like wading), Yes. There are signs posted, however, people ignore the signs and wade in the water/swim.

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
