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

  • This is one of the best hikes to a waterfall on the island. It is not the tallest waterfall nor the one with the most water however I believe it is the most scenic looking Trail as you hike up to the waterfall itself. There is so much to see. This Trail I highly recommend for anyone wanting to have beautiful scenery of different types as you hike to the waterfall. Absolutely gorgeous.

  • This was my first hike and it was amazing! The trek to the waterfall was worth the climbing and sloshing through the mud. Regardless of the weather there were lots of other hikers enjoying the views and the day as well. If you’re here for a while, get out and experience and enjoy Hawaii!! It’s worth it!!

  • Breath taking😘😍you can completely loose yourself in the sunset that this view provides. One of my favorite spots on the island. Honolulu it's self is very enchanting but the views all over the island such as this one just makes it that much more magical😍 this picture screams so many things about the paradise that lives within the island of Honolulu. From the water falls, to the beach side views, to the wonderful local foods and local company... Honolulu Hawaii is a for sure must visit at least once in your life time❤🤟😍

  • I did this hike with my two neighbors and a lady we met at the entrance and it was amazing!!! I am definitely a beginner as this is only the second hike I've ever done but it is so worth it at the end when you reach the waterfall! There is a good bit of climbing over fallen trees but that was all part of the fun! Oh and walking through the water and mud. You will definitely get muddy and wet so wear good shoes and old clothes obviously. I stood under the waterfall as well. Way worth it for me :) if anyone knows some other good hikes for beginners let me know!

  • Beautiful falls! Trail is very wet and prepared to get feet wet. Wear proper foot wear meaning hiking sandals or boots. Its easy to get side tracked on to other trails that can take you in the wrong direction so you really need to pay attention. Absolutely worth it at the end. Bring water and prepare to get wet...its the rainforest.
