This hike was incredibly scary. SO muddy, steep, and unpredictable. You could not avoid slipping, no matter how nimble. Everyone I went with fell at least twice, hard. Scraped knees, mud all over us from head to toe. We did not come prepared, so clean...More

So beautiful so exotic and so full of life. This trail is not super easy but its not hard easy and you can literally get lost in its forest of beautiful plants

An amazing trail through 'jungle' and preserved waterfall with many super rarities and even a peeve beach winner natural pool. Really art of nature. Well worth the trip.

My son-in-law and I hiked this trail after a heavy rain. The trail elevation grade is not very steep compared to many of the other island trails, however the mud, ruts, stream crossings and web of tree roots make up for elevation gain. Our shoes...More

We hiked this when it was only supposed to sprinkle. It rained the whole time. Lots of mud, but thankfully no bugs like others had warned. We didn't make it to the waterfall because we didn't chance going across the rushing waters. Still worth the...More

Wear good closed shoes and bring a walking stick and plenty of water! I was worth it! There is a fee for parking, I also recommend the arborerium nearby!
