I went with a group of friends on a hike to this waterfall. I would say it’s a 2-3 mile round trip from the fence with about 500 ft elevation change. The path is mostly along a BWS gravel/dirt road. At the entrance is a...More

This is a lesser known waterfall but is one of my favorites! We went after a rainy day and the falls was huge! It was a great hike and one of my favorite falls on the island.

Stayed in Kaneohe and while looking up fairly easy hikes came across Hamama. Very easy and pleasant hike. Not the most amazing waterfall you will see but fit the bill.

Wonderful trail for families. It was a little slippery and muddy but we didn't fall. Part of the hike is a little steep. It was all worth it. For such a short hike and a beautiful waterfall it's definitely something to do more than once.

Have done Hamama Falls many, many times; Waihe'e just two. Hamama is such an easy walk with about 600 feet elevation gain. The falls are beautiful although it can be a bit crowded at times. Yes, you will be trespassing on BWS property. But it's...More

I’m not sure. I was alone and encountered a few groups of boisterous young people playing music loudly. This seems to be a favorite place for locals, but not generally very populated. I’d ask someone local.
