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 - Write a Review

  • This is probably the most magical hike I've been to so far on Oahu! The hike takes about an hour to get to the falls if you're walking fast. But it might takes you longer because you will be distracted by the amazing jungle. This entire place is so green and lush even in the summer heat. The falls it's self is tall but isn't gushing with water. The pools aren't deep enough to swim but going underneath the falls is a great way to cool off. This hike has you going through a lot foliage with some streams to cross. However this hike is amazing and I highly recommend!

  • I love this hike. Been here before. Gonna go today too. Hike is nice and the reservoir is beautiful. Trail might be muddy when wet. Its a small hike perfect to entangle with Hawaii's environment and enjoy nature and at the same time not loose interest during the hike. Nothing hard a person can't do. Parking is available too. Bring a change of shoes n a plastic bag. Bring clothes if you want to take a dip in the waterfall - its worth it.

  • Nice short hike for all skill levels with breathtaking views right at the beginning. Can get pretty muddy if it has rained, but still relatively easy to hike. Bring a swimsuit and enjoy the cool refreshing waterfall at the end.

  • Fun short hike. Make sure you wear proper footwear and water....No flip flops for this trail

  • A very enjoyable hike if you like to climb over rocks and walk near streams. The waterfall at the end is also very nice and worth the walk if you don't like to hike much. Multiple pathways can get you to the waterfall as long as you stay near the stream. It's an easy hike when it hasn't rained recently, but when the water levels are higher it can be a little more tricky and slippery. Make sure to where good shoes and bring bug spray.
