Great spot, just be mindful!

I put the pin into my Apple Maps app and had absolutely no trouble finding the trailhead. I also had zero trouble descending to the cave. I could see that it may be treacherous if it was wet/muddy, but if you hold onto the ropes you will be fine. The only thing I would say is to be mindful of both the people staying at the Ali'i Kai resort (as they are paying to be there), but more importantly if you're lucky enough to encounter sea turtles do not harass them. This is their natural habitat and we don't want to ruin it for them!

Short, sweet, and to the point

This hike was not long by any means, just a little steep. The view at the end was well worth the walk!

Probably better with water

These directions are pretty generic, but with a little common sense they'll get you to the waterfall. I would just recommend going when there's actually water in the stream 😂

Dangerous but worth it

This is one of THE most incredible things I did on Maui. At first it doesn't seem like much, but as soon as you get to the cliff you realize that it's the real deal. And no matter how shaky your legs may be on the way down the cliff face, seeing the tide pools at the bottom are well worth it. DON'T GO DURING A NORTH SWELL!

One of the most beautiful beaches you'll ever see

If you're able to find it, this beach will be one of the most rewarding you'll ever spend time on. It's not a long walk, the beach is beautiful, and there's always interesting people spending time on the beach.

Great hike if you don't have much time

While this hike is fantastic and the waterfalls are amazing, it's not the most exciting thing to do on the Road to Hana.
