Hike to Lulumahu Falls
Hawaii › Lulumahu Trail
Added by Tara Warolin
Secret hike off the Pali Highway through a bamboo forest, into a sprawling green valley vista and up a mountainside to this 60ft tiered waterfall.
Park off the Old Pali Highway before the lookout in the dirt parking lot. There is an entry along the fence that will go through. The first part of the hike takes you through a bamboo forest. Most of the time it will be muddy, so be prepared to get dirty. This will lead you to an open grassy valley that gives you spectacular views of the valley. Follow a small path in the grass, or walk to the top of the hill for the best views. There will be a cement wall with graffiti and then a small staircase opposite that. Take the stairs up, go around the fenced area and stay along the creek to get to the waterfall.

- Shoes you don't mind getting muddy

Easy Hike To A Nice Waterfall
Used to do this in-between classes sometimes. Nice, easy hike just off the side of the Pali Highway in Nu'uanu Valley. Hour and a half roundtrip, can do faster but why do that? Nice views from the valley floor.
