Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"This is surely among the most exciting hikes in Koke’e State Park, offering heart-stopping views into Waimea Canyon as well as a visit to a waterfall flowing from a beautiful little pool surrounded by tropical vegetation. Most hikers walk down to the falls and pool and back up again the same way. On this hike you return via the Black Pipe Trail, making a slightly longer trip and allowing a greater variety of scenery and more solitude. You also can continue on to the end of the Canyon Trail and the Kumuwela Lookout, where you can connect with any number of other trails in the park. But this loop gives you the most scenery and variety for the least effort."
