Now that Noah is robust enough to take a little fall, we are starting to explore more and finally got around to hiking to Nu'uuli Falls (new-oo-lee). It is a relatively easy hike but does have a few stream crossings, loose rocks and some steep, narrow sections. For those on island.... take the road next to Family Mart and drive back until you pass the pig farm on the right, the family is very friendly and shouldn't have problem with you hiking back to the falls.
It was only a twenty minute hike and required minimal preparation, we loaded Noah on Mom's back and headed out. It is a nice walk and puts you in a jungle setting, the stream is in stark contrast to most of the environment here due to its smooth weathered and round rocks.
There are a series of waterfalls as you move up the stream, but beyond the first falls it becomes a much more difficult and dangerous climb. Dad took a quick hike ahead, there are portions that require hand climbing and there is a lot of loose material so be prepared if you choose to hike beyond the first falls. In addition to more waterfalls as you hike onward there is a smooth rock section that can be used like a water slide.
The dark jagged rocks at the falls reminded me of a cave in Middle Earth and isn't quiet captures in photos. The pool at the base of the falls was at least four feet deep and it was chilly, definitely a good place for a dip on a hot day.
