Canyon Trail to Waipoo Falls

3600 Kokee Rd
Waimea, HI 96796

Waipoo Falls is a 800 foot cascading waterfall that can be seen from various lookouts along the canyon road. You won’t be disappointed by this lovely hike that starts off amongst the forested bird-lands on the rim of Halemanu Canyon. This is a popular hike for families.

The beginning of this trail will take you from hwy 550 and along Halemanu Road for .75 miles to the trail head of the canyon trail and Waipoo Falls Trail. Though you will not see the falls in all their splendor, this tranquil and beautiful hike will lead you along the canyons rim giving you a unique vantage pint of the canyon and Kokee Rain Forest. The trail ends at the top of the 800 foot waterfall along a fragrant Awapuhi Ginger lined stream where will find yourself perched high above the canyon floor with a spectacular view of the canyon below and magnificent photo opportunities.
