Definitely one of the best hikes we've done so far although a bit scary along the ridge of the Ko'olaus on the KST.
As usual, a lot of traffic on the section where we hiked on the Kuli'ou'ou trail.
We had a bit of a hard time finding a path down from the Picnic table but straight down the mountainside turned out to be quite ok.
The lower part is pretty dry without much protection from the sun but the last part of this hike climbs slowly through a wonderful forest with an exceptionally gorgeous view at the top!
One of the best hikes! Hiking up the three waterfalls is spectacular - the last one is the overflow of the crater flats. The main trail goes up to the Ko'olaus and then around the crater but we did the shortcut by taking a left turn right when reaching the crater avoiding the steep climb to the top of the Ko'olau mountains.
