Tips for Visiting Oahu’s Waterfalls

  • Be sure to do your research for any waterfall you plan to visit. Some require rigorous hikes that aren’t appropriate for every visitor.
  • No matter the length of your selected hike, bring enough water. Temperatures in the 80’s coupled with exposure to direct sunlight increases your need for water.
  • Wear sunscreen and reapply as necessary during your hike.
  • Never ignore any warning signs you come across. The terrain can change due to rain and other factors, so warning signs supersede anything you may have read while conducting research.
  • Let someone know where you’re going and what time to expect you to return.
