Good shoes will be helpful as you venture up through the bamboo and eucalyptus trees. The fresh smell is heavenly and this hike is a great way to stretch your legs.

As a older avid trail hiker,I recommend this hike as a must. One of my top 25 hikes! Dress appropriately for wet and muddy conditions. You're going to get dirty period.

I need to update my review from years ago. They have closed the last 200 yards to the upper pool. That was the best part to rest or picnic at the end of the trail around the pool. Please DO NOT try to make a...More

Located right down past Hana near the Seven Sacred Pools. The drive down past Hana is not for the faint hearted and a lot worse than the road before Hana. Road is only just wide enough for 1.5 cars and a lot of courtesy is...More
