This is a good choice for a hike if you don’t want to invest hours or work too hard. The trail is easy to follow and generally in good shape. Like so many trails in Kauai during the winter months you can expect some slippery...More

The first thing you will note, when hiking to any waterfall in Kauai is that because it is known as "The Garden Island", it is lush and green which tells you it rains a lot more than other islands and therefore the trails are MUDDY....More

We arrived early (first!), so we had no guidance. Somewhere online, we read that the entrance was marked by a yellow gate. The gate is not yellow, just metal. The unmarked parking area is simply off the edge of the road, on dirt, parallel to...More

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

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
