This is a part of the National Parks Service so you’ll need to pay a few bucks to enter the park. The trail itself is a bit rigorous at times so don’t be one of the dopes hiking while wearing your flip-flops. If nothing else,...More

A fabulous hike with a variety of things to see along the way. The trail climbs gradually close by the river, with a number of waterfalls and bridge crossings. The huge banyan tree is amazing, and the bamboo forests are stunning and slightly creepy. The...More

Loved the bamboo and my wife was glad there was a path that was elevated. We thought it might be a harder hike but once you do it you can see it's a very basic one. One trip I would recommend to walk for all...More

Once upon a time you could sit in a pool above the first waterfall. Let us go in the pools above the waterfalls! Why do they insist on taking the funniest parts and blocking them off? I get it that flash floods are a possibility...More

Banyon trees, magical bamboo forest, waterfalls and giant waterfall at the end. Well worth the 4 mile round trip hike. Take your time, bring water, wear good shoes and bring your camera. Take a waterproof bag for your gear in case it rains. After rains...More

This hike is both beautiful and fun back to the lush green jungle. You will have to pass through some water that will go over your foot so wear the appropriate footwear ( I wore coral booties). I usually don't like this kind of thing...More

This 3.7 mile round-trip hike is a must-do now that you've successfully navigated the Road to Hana and beyond. Most of it is a dirt (sometimes muddy) path but there is some boardwalk. It's not terribly steep but a definite incline. USE GOOD FOOTWEAR; it's...More
