Lulumahu Waterfall is a beautiful hike that rests on Board of Water Supply land. The original forest paths and directions were accurate as of December 2012. However it has been brought to my attention that the trails running parallel to the stream/river are blocked with debris and fallen trees. Fierce storms are a reality in Hawaii and I do not have the time to rehike all of the trails in this blog and retype all of my directions. (Believe or not, I have a day job.) Therefore, all directions have been removed to prevent any hikers from getting lost. If you wish to be put on a waiting list to hike to this waterfall with me then please comment below. I rather just take a few people a month to the waterfall in order to minimize the risk of folks becoming disoriented or lost. Hikers getting lost would be absolutely horrible to me.
Please do not go inside the palace or stand on top of the structure. It is falling apart and lets all be honest…you are not that light. Any amount of weight bearing down on the walls can tear it apart. Lets leave this part of history intact for future generations. Do not touch the palace.
Yes, that is the trail. You may wish to bring loppers to clear a path into the bamboo. Otherwise you could get lost for a couple of days.
I kept on wondering if this was the day that I was going to die. It was quite spooky in the back of this forest.
Just keep walking for about a mile.
I was relieved when I saw the ending of this bamboo forest trail. I highly suggest bringing loppers since the ribbons might be removed.
Please keep the trail clean. The Board of Water Supply workers do not hike all the way to the back of the forest. They work near the Nuuanu Reservior. Pack out what you pack in.
I have glossed over landownership. To read more specific details please view http://www.state.hi.us/dlnr/chair/meetings/submittals/20061208/fw/C%20-%20Forestry%20and%20Wildlife%20-%20Submittals%20C4.pdf
