So my BF and sisters Nancy and Anny, their friend Ruby and Laura decided to come hiking with us to Maunawili Falls. FINALLY!!! This trail is approximately 3 mile long out and back hike. Its considered easy-moderate about 4 hours long. From Honolulu to Pali Highway to Maunawili Valley (third traffic light after tunnels), turn right on Auloa Road, left fork onto Maunawili Road. Go approx 2 miles to end of public road, park on Kelewina Street. Walk on Maunawili Road (private section) approx 1/2 city block to trail head sign on right.
This is a fun muddy trail and well maintain. We walked uphill along the stream, then finally crossed it, hiked up the mountain, then came down, crossed the stream again and walked up towards the waterfall. When we got to the falls, it was overly crowded and the falls was a lot smaller than I expected despite the rains. I think we enjoyed going off the trail to look for bamboo, fruits and plants more than the waterfall!!! Total possible calories burn: 1600.
