A closed notation might be useful. We drove all the way out and then saw the closed signs. To many hikes available to worry about fines

Scenic but muddy. On the way down we had to really take our time to keep from falling. If you can, wear boots, bring trekking poles and water shoes you can use to cross the river. The trail description, etc at the top are all spot-on.

Gorgeous! Very easy hike; beware of some super muddy trails though. Didn't cover all the trails, but I look forward to going back and exploring the rest of them soon. :)

What can I say?? For inclines this has been my most challenging. The numbers along the side help keep you motivated to continue. I carried my 2 y/o daughter which added additional difficulty coming up. If your afraid of a small expansion this is not for you. I witnessed a person turn around because of it. Great challenge.

This trail is mislabeled. It is not the "Toilet Bowl" which is on the east side of Hanauma Bay. The reviews and tracks listed here are for Koko Head Trail.

Its a pleasant walk to the first fall but I wonder if we are trespassing on Board of water supply land.

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.
