The trailhead is located in a residential area off Maunawili Road. Be respectful and park away from the trailhead and driveways. Try not to be loud and please do not leave trash.
Maunawili Falls trail is about a 3 mile hike and usually muddy. A good walking stick will help in the rough spots. Weekends are usually packed with hiking traffic. Following the trail, you will have to cross a shallow stream and climb uphill. There will be stairs that seem to go on forever, but I promise they don’t! When crossing in the streams, just walk in the water. The rocks can be real slippery and the cool water will feel awesome!
The last set of stairs you will come to go straight down. You can hear the water on the way down. The waterfall is absolutely beautiful! There is a decent size pool at the bottom and 3 jumping spots. Like I said, weekends will be crowded. It’s a gorgeous hike though and definitely worth it!
