Off the beaten path

This three-and-half mile, three-hour hike winds through dense jungle under a canopy of monkeypod trees, and while it’s not an expert hike by any means, the sometimes-muddy terrain and incline make it a bit of a challenge for the out-of-shape. The physical effort is rewarded, though, by dramatic, panoramic views of east Oahu on one side and verdant mountain scenery on the other. You'll also have the chance to cool off in the refreshing pool of Maunawili Falls itself.
