This is almost a straight up hike to the picnic bench. Coming down was easy, however, going up was a surprise. Lots of places to hold onto and pull yourself up. After the picnic bench, it levels out and appears to go everywhere. Another hiker said there are trails everywhere after the picnic bench. Well go again, but plan on jogging the trails at the top. Maybe even take a bike, if one wishes to carry it up the mountain.

What a Hike!!! Loved it loved it loved it
It was little bit difficult to climb over the last mile of the hike to the falls but worth it .. Awesome falls.. Too much of rocks and very slippery but with proper boots that won't be a problem.. In the last mile if you feel like you are done just don't stop.. Something really spectacular nature is waiting for you !!!! Note: The park recommends at least 2 liters per person. They are not kidding. We did the recommended amount and ran out with 2 miles to go on the return. My husband started to get dehydrated and ill from it . Better to take lot of water !

Here are the warnings provided to me by a Kalalau Hippie: Watch out for falling rocks especially when goats are above you, don't go in the water at the beach if in doubt (shore break/currents) and same goes for any stream crossing.

Amazing and challenging hike! Take your time at the difficult sections which is not only crawlers ledge at mile 7. This is doable in 1 day with a pack. Be sure to buy a permit months prior!

98% shaded. We have two black dogs who overheat rather quickly if they're in the sun and it was perfect early in the afternoon. It's short but gives good views of the bay.
