Waihe'e Valley (Swinging Bridges) Professional Review and Guide
"The trail’s informal name comes from the two suspension bridges that cross the Waihe’e River. The trail passes through private property belonging to the company that owns the irrigation ditch that in earlier days supplied water to sugarcane fields. The swinging bridges are fun to cross and there is a perfect little pool to swim in at the end.Park in a wide spot just beyond the kiosk and hike up the road to a Y junction with chains across both forks. Step over the chain on the left fork. Soon you will begin to hear water flowing through the ditch on the left (south). At a second fork turn left again, stepping over or around another gate. The road levels out and you stroll alongside sugarcane and laua’e ferns to the first swinging bridge. It looks pretty rickety, but it’s firm."
