Twin Falls Professional Review and Guide
"Don’t expect solitude on this very popular hike because the swimming is great and the falls are beautiful. It isn’t exactly unspoiled wilderness, and it isn’t even marked on the road, but everybody knows where it is. There’s a little fruit and drink stand at the entrance and a jar for donations to help maintain the place. It has been closed at times because the path goes right past people’s homes. Please stay on the trail, away from private property, and don’t trash somebody else’s neighborhood.
Go through the gate, passing a little farm stand with fresh fruit and a pot for donations to help maintain the area. Begin walking down the gravel road, avoiding lots of minor roads to side trails that lead to little pools along Ho’olawa Stream, and others that are driveways to private residences. The road is lined with wonderful vegetation, including huge elephant ears called ape in Hawaiian (pronounced “ah-pay”), and appropriately named Monstera deliciosa, with leaves that have Swiss cheese holes in them."
