Lulumahu Falls

Great hike with plenty of great views and many paths to take that all lead to the falls. Bamboo forests, stream fording, deep mud. Falls are a very stunning end to what can be an easy or mildly difficult trek depending on what fork in the road you take.

Hi all,

I'm hoping to hike this on either May 24th or 26th in the morning. It'll be my first time so I'd love to have company or if you can offer any tips on finding/getting to the legal trail that'd be awesome! Email me vangtria@gmail.com Thanks in advance!

I'll be in Oahu April 27th-1st. Based on everyone's review Ill probably regret it if I skip on this hike. It seems that finding the "legal trail" is a bit hard to locate, so if any locals or anybody would like to hit up this hike email me at eh2.kwan@gmail.com.

Hi. I'm planning to do this hike on the early morning of 25th or 27th this month. Haven't decided whether I want to do it legal way or illegal way since I never done this before. If anyone is interested to join and plan together email me at timotheusding@yahoo.com
Cheers. :)

Easy, short trail with a lot of different things to see. Interesting to learn about the belief system and the place of refuge.

Easy trail to get somewhat close to the ancient stone temple. This wasn't my favorite hike but there is some interesting history here.

Iao Valley Needle Hike

Stunning views but I was surprised by how many people were out there. Short hike, and I would not recommend it after or during significant rainfall. Many signs warn of the flash flooding potential along the creek.
