Descent

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.

Respecting the Land
Hawaiian land is considered sacred to native Hawaiians and many locals, so please stay on-trail, take nothing but photos, and leave nothing but footprints. Respect the locals - don't stay for long and have a backup hike planned in case the parking lot is full.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
