|Hanakapiai Beach to Hanakapiai Falls
The hike to Hanakapi'ai Falls is muddy because you cross the stream
several more times. Several of the stream crossings are challenging.
Along the trail are several bamboo forest (they sound like a wind
chime forest) and lots of mud. At the falls take a minute to see all the
ferns lining the walls around the falls. Several smaller falls are along the
trail, which creates a very peaceful sound as you hike. If you decide to
swim, be careful of objects coming over the falls.
Round trip plan on 7-8 hours but it can be done in less time if you don’t
spend time at the beach and falls. Total hike to the falls and back is 8
