No Happy trekking when you get lost on a trail that lead nowere, there is no loop. Feeling lost and confused just not a good way to end our wonderful family weekend. This is not a nice or easy walk, muddy short trail takes you...More

We had kids ages 8-11 on the trail today, while it was super wet and muddy the trail was easy enough for them to maneuver and the scenery was beautiful! I highly recommend wearing water shoes that can get wet as you need to hike...More

Porely marked and not an easy hike if you go the wrong way. The pond is nice but more to see on Oahu. If you stay along the stream you'll be okay. Ps... parking stinks.

It is a loop trail so it doesn't matter which way you choose to go. I recommend going clockwise, as the part that goes near the stream is closer towards the right side. I'd save that sight for last! Also, I went right after it...More
