enjoyed this hike with the waterfall at the end. We parked on a residential street and the gate sign made us think it was closed but it was easy to go around through an opening in the fence after we saw other people on their way out. It was quite an incline a couple of time in the last third of the trail. Glad we had water and mosquito repellent. gravel trail was really easy to walk on and follow throughout. it appears that the falls generate a water source for the town due to many pump stations along the trail.

Great hike on a rainy day! It turned out to be more challenging that we expected with the steep descent and climb back out to Pu'u Uau. The falls were really nice with clear blue water.

Try the side trail that runs parallel to the Log ties. Just make sure you have shoes with good grips.

Just did a loop down into Kalauao valley, past the falls and up Kalauao ridge and connect back to aiea loop trail. Quite a good workout when ascending the ridge back up. I think this variation is much more fun than coming back the same way after visiting the stream/falls

Hoopii Falls

Has everything you'd want in a trail, except maybe difficulty and bathrooms. The waterfalls were scenic, #1 was deep enough to jump in, #2 had a rope swing but did not try it myself, majority of the walk is shaded, but had to dock a star because the wild roosters were constantly crowing. I fear I will hear them in my dreams tonight.

Beautiful hike!!! We didn't hike to the cave but we did hike to the first and second falls! Great views and beautiful tropical forest! Also a shady hike which would make it great for hike for any time of the day

Awesome views, not as tough as proclaimed. Definitely worth a couple hours for the views from the top.

Way too easy since it's a paved path the whole way up. 2 year olds were doing it. The views at the top were spectacular. Clear view to Maui.
