DANGER!!! Pit bulls and wild dogs!!! We had a horrifying experience! We got the permit and there was no mention in the disclaimer we had to sign or from the woman at Hawaii reserves about dangerous dogs!!! We took our friends medium sized dog with us and on the private road met a local who warned us to hike with a stick due to wild dogs. We then passed the house with three huge pit bulls and upon further reading of reviews, these dangerous dogs have bitten hikers before. Luckily they were chained but still within 15 feet growling and barking and pulling on their chains. We did the hike, didn’t quite make the falls due to time and were just coming back to where the trail meets the private road when a huge dog (pit bull/Great Dane cross) comes running toward us in attack mode. Luckily my partner is very tall and challenged him with the huge fence post we’d been carrying the whole hike. He backed off a bit then came at us again but was again threatened away for good. We then had to walk past the 3 pit bulls again and then 300 feet from the car see two loose pit bulls roaming the street. A very kind man in a pick up let us jump in the back of his truck and drove us to our vehicle. One of the worst experiences of my life.

Easy start at the sports ground. Just 2km at road, starting point of the trail a bit difficult to find but if you hit the trail it is easy to find the way up. A bit slippery if wet, but no worries. After a while great views down to the coast. A nice active adventure. If you want to go down to the falls, the last 200 meters are a bit a kind of climbing. But worth to do. Because it belongs to the Momorn you may register in advance as this is a kind a respect.

This tops the 4 hikes we've done across the islands. A proper hike! Permit easily got from Hawaii reserves Inc at laie shops. At a decent pace, but slowing for the final muddy section, took 1.5hrs to reach the falls. Hiking shoes made it easy going, it gets very muddy for last mile. A guy passed going down wearing toe shoes- seemed a good alternative. Loved the varied landscapes and ecosystems the trail passes, and the view back to the ocean before you descend to the falls. About 1 hr 10 to get down. So peaceful at falls, up in clouds. Stunning.

This is a very pretty hike. But, it's not for beginners. Steep, at times muddy, and long. Be sure to bring plenty of water and some snacks. Oh, and you'll also want to pick up a permit.

This trail is definitely a little more than just a hike. If you are going, be sure to bring lots of water and don't worry about snacks because there are a lot of cherry guavas everywhere. When you reach the coconut tree, your halfway there. A little disappointed when we got to the waterfall. It was a little opaque and not as clear as most waterfalls. This is more for the experienced hiker and not for a casual stroll. A few difficult areas especially in the guava forest so be prepared to slip alot and get a face full of bugs! Also a little tricky down and up from the waterfall a rope dangles for you to help your descent and ascent. The view is beautiful at the top
