Hike to Lulumahu Falls

2.3 Miles Round Trip - 900 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Lulumahu Trail - Search Nearby - 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.

Intro jungle hike with neat waterfall

This is a fun and popular hike located close to town. We went there on a misty afternoon and were joined by a few others who had the same idea. The scenery is quite neat and the opportunity to get muddy is one that we can all appreciate :). If your looking for a nice hike near town I recommend this one! (as long as you do not expect to go to a nice restaurant immediately after!)

Jungle Hike

Great hike that can be a bit muddy in some parts, but totally worth checking out if you are in the area!

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.
