This is one of the prettiest and most popular hikes on O’ahu. Hardcore wilderness buffs might find it a bit tame compared to some of the other muddy scrambles that pass for trails on O’ahu, but this well-engineered and more-or-less maintained trail does make the going easier and prevents erosion. This is a perfect family hike along a stream to a waterfall and pool. You’ll be following Waihi Stream all the way to the falls. In the stream gully to your right are several monstrous strangler figs dripping with aerial roots, vines, and creepers, many of which you will recognize as ordinary houseplants like philodendrons and pothos run amok. You’ll feel as though you’ve entered a Tarzan movie.
