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 even a little fruit and drink stand at the entrance, and a jar for donations to help with upkeep. The trail has been closed at times because the path does go right past people’s homes. It’s open now, but please stay on the trail, away from private property, and don’t trash the neighborhood. Go through the gate, where a little farm stand provides fresh fruit and a pot for donations to help maintain the area. Begin walking down the gravel road, noting that there are lots of minor roads and side trails that lead to little pools along Ho’olawa Stream, and many others that are driveways to private residences. The road is lined with wonderful vegetation, including huge elephant ears called ape (pronounced ah-pay) in Hawaiian and appropriately named Monstera deliciosa leaves with Swiss cheese-like holes in them.
