Lulumahu Falls - Review

Off the Pali Highway, a short hike takes you to the bustling waterfall located near Kaniakapupu Ruins (King Kamehameha III’s summer home).

The refreshing view is some thing that was clearly loved by the King himself and a dip in the water is nothing short of luxury! Kick off those shoes and take a well worth shower here as you see the rustic side of Honolulu.

To make the hike easier- lookout for red ribbons tied to trees that warn you from being off track!

Lulumahu Falls, Honolulu Reviews

  • I wish I could do more than 5 stars. Absolutely one of Hods greatest creations. Waterfalls. Rainbows. Positive energy. An hour long hike for an old man with a bad heart & stopping & taking pictures. There’s a short cut through a government construction site. Avoid during working. Run away. Because you’re in trouble if they catch you. But they go home early. No night security. I wouldn’t do anything more than take pictures. Short cut saves 1/2 an hour. Well worth it

  • Awesome destination. Would not bring small children because the trail is rough and MUDDY! I did the hike back in sandals but I would have killed for some waterproof hiking boots. Prepare to get wet and don’t get lost (it’s rather easy to lose your heading.) highly recommend!

  • Awesome hike. Very muddy towards the middle. Wear shoes you don't care that gets muddy. Also maybe a change of shoes and bottoms as well so that you don't get any mud in the car. Its not that bad, you could try to avoid the mud by stepping carefully but its not that easy. Its well worth the muddy shoes trust me. The waterfall is beautiful!😊

  • Really Nice hike. Not terribly difficult. Slippery in a few places. Bout 40 minutes each way for my group but we're kinda fast. There are a few trails that parallel the stream up to the falls and its hard to figure out which one is correct but they all take you to the same place. The wall bu the short waterfall is about the half way point. Look out for wild parking lot chickens.

  • Trail is pretty poorly marked and confusing. Trail is also fairly slippery. We found our way fine, even at night. But several parties during the day got lost and we had to end up calling a rescue for lost party when we returned to the trailhead. I don’t recommend trying this trail for the first time in the afternoon and you should procedure at your own risk. That being said I had a great time. Very pretty waterfall.
