The Waikamoi Falls Trail in Maui County, Hawaii is an easy 0.1 mile out-and-back hike out to Lower Waikamoi Falls, which is a 20 foot tall waterfall that cascades down into a swimming pool below.
This trail can either be packed or empty - it all depends on the traffic, time of day, and weather. Beware of flash flooding during heavy rains - do not attempt to swim or hike upstream during heavy rains for this reason.
If you continue following the trail upstream, you'll reach Upper Waikamoi Falls, which is not much further; however, the hike can be dangerous if the water level is high, hence the short distance tracked here.
Parking: Parking can be found to either side of the stream, but a larger turnout can be found on the west side of the stream/bridge.
Warning: Flash flooding is a common occurrence along streams in Hawaii. Please check the weather before hiking this trail and do not hike upstream if the water is brown and rushing. Flash floods can occur anytime upstream where heavy rains fall and you cannot always predict when a flash flood may happen. Be aware of the dangers and hike at your own risk.
