    This hike is worth it! Breath taking views at the end along incredible cliff sides. The only down side of this hike is the muddy trail. It does get slippery so be careful! Easy to navigate trail that ...  more »

    This 8 mile hike is straight down to go in and straight up on the way back. Just keep that in mind when planning for water and gear. Most of the hike is tree covered and fairly humid. Path can be slic...  more »

    A great hike in reverse. The initial portion is mostly downhill with the return trek being uphill. Trail is very accessible and easy to follow. And when you reach the vista, you'll be speechless!  more »

    Really nice walk of about one hour and a half, with an amazing view at the end on the Na pali coast. Definitely worth it. I too used one of the walking stick that you can find at the beginning of the trail.

    The views are worth the hike, especially if you venture past the official end of the trail. It is 3 miles to get there and 95% of it is down hill so make sure you take water with you as the hike back up the hill can be strenuous. There's not much for views on the way there but it is a well used, nice trail.

    3 miles down for a amazing view! The 3 mile up isn't that hard if the weather is good.

    The hike was kind of hard but the reward was worth it!

    Bring lots of water. Pick up a walking stick at the start of the trail and be prepared to get you shoes muddy. At the end of the trail there is a fence telling with a warning sign. Obviously don't go down if you're afraid of heights or if the conditions aren't good, but if you wait a bit and a few others go down, try it you came 3.1 miles. I'm a pretty big pansy, but if you go down cautiously you can do it. At the bottom of a small hill there's a narrow bridge and a narrowing/dizzying trail so if you don't feel comfortable turn around. There were enough people going down, so I gave it a shot. It's an exhilarating experience and the highlight of my trip. Never experienced anything like that before.
