Our Journey

I've done this hike countless times, and I still enjoy it. It is a great beginner hike, or a hike to do after you haven't hiked in a while. It's not too long, but still gives you a sweat from the uphill climbs. There are three major hills until you finally reach the falls. The waterfall is always flowing and you can also head to Waihe'e Falls as well if you want a longer, hidden adventure. There is also a swimming spot after about 10 minutes into the hike where you can jump off the concrete wall. There is also a rope swing and you can even climb the tree and jump off of that. The last time I went, a bunch of people were BBQing and drinking here. This hike is pretty popular and a lot of people hike to the falls. It is also pet friendly. So bring your dogs for a great exercise!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The parking at the end of Waihe'e Road.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Head through the gated area to start the hike.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There was a hole in the fence on the left. There is also a trash bag so please don't litter!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The trail is pretty much paved road the whole way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some parts can get a little muddy after a good rain.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep continuing straight and follow the road.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An old water pump. This land is owned by the Board of Water Supply.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the left will be this nice swimming hole.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pac Man says jump in. The water is nice!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Moving on, head over the bridge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Head to the right. The left path was a little muddy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the Board of Water Supply. Keep out!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And now the uphill climbs! There are three major hills.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This hill was long, but nice views of the mountain in the distance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About a half hour to the falls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ugh...Another hill!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The trail leading to Waihe'e Falls here!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hamama Falls behind the water pipe!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So beautiful and always flowing!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A shot back downstream with Hamama Falls in the distance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Looking at the falls, I seen a trail to the left and right side heading to the top. Maybe I'll save that for the next time I come here!
