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 Reviews & Ratings

  • Pretty decent hike beginning with a bamboo forest and then ending with the falls. A nice way to cool off at the end of a hike. Stay on the path so that you don't get lost. There are blue and pink ribbons tied to trees to show you which way to go. At some points we didn't see any ribbons so we kept following the footpath created by hikers.

  • Great falls, room to swim in the basin if you want. Hike is pretty reasonable, maybe 45 minutes. Parking is easy, while the Pali is shut down (as of August 2019) but there route is probably a little if from whatever maps tries to tell you.

  • Highly recommended. This hike is dog friendly & children friendly hike. There’s a lot of shade thought out the hike and lots of beautiful scenery. We started on the trail going to the reservoir and the breathtaking view of the mountain. Love this hike!

  • This hike was beautiful but exhausting. I’m a newcomer to hiking, this put me to sleep for 16 hours afterwards. It may be different for experienced hikers. It’s possible to bring your kids here but I wouldn’t recommend it. There are some very rocky areas that may be hard to navigate but it’s nothing to worry about. Make sure to follow the ribbons! The waterfall was gorgeous. Some folks were even swimming. The walk through the bamboo forest was also nice, a great way to start and end your hike.

  • Beautiful falls at end of a fun hike. (can be slick... take care to avoid falls)
