A Less Than Legal Hike on Oahu

Everybody hikes Diamond Head and Manoa Falls.

This one is less known…Lulumahu Falls. And this is what you’ll find if you google it:

“If you try to hike into Lulumahu Falls, in Nuuanu Valley, you could be arrested, seriously injured (it’s within a bow and arrow hunting ground) or get lost. It’s very, very hard to find.”

It was rainy. And muddy. And AMAZING.









  1. Hiking to a waterfall is a perfect adventurous trek – I need to lace up my shoes and douse myself with mosquito repellent and head to the rainforest to get an eyeful of Oahu’s scenic wonders. Beautiful pictures you got there.

  2. I’ve never been to Hawaii and your pictures make me want to move Hawaii up on my list of vacation spots. This looks like it was such a great adventure.

  3. What an adventure!!! Looks like a beautiful hike and the destination – waterfall!!!

    Your photos remind me totally of all the crazy hikes hubby and I did a long time ago in Maui. I love your waterfall scenes. I’m not sure I’d be able to manage some of those intense and technical hikes like I used to. But those falls might be worth the try!

  16. Emmi says:

    That waterfall is gorgeous! It seems like quite the adventure.

  20. Elena says:

    My husband hates hiking and I feel that I am missing so much. I love to hike, but we are compensating , we go on shorter ones 🙂

  21. Nicole FLint says:

    That waterfall looks so refreshing and relaxing! Your hike was definitely worth the risk.

  22. This place looks incredible! It looks like a such a cool little secret world. But, why would you get arrested if you go here?

      It’s on government owned property, and has signs all over saying NO TRESPASSING. There is bow and arrow hunting allowed, but you have to have a permit to do it.
