“Amazing waterfall accessed from the Kalalau Trail”— Bill Hilf
If parking to hike the Hanakapi'ai trail, it is recommended to get a morning and afternoon parking pass.
Four creek crossings; fairly easy to navigate, but be careful of the force of the flowing stream. You can swim in the pool at the falls; but watch for falling rocks near the falls (we saw them fall!) Main Kalalau Trail to Hanakapi'ai Beach can get crowded with tourists hiking, so suggest to get an early start.
