    Beyond the "remain on designated walkway sign" lies a Narnian nature experience. About 1 hour trek in the mud for me through banana trees to a summit. Wear flip flops or shoes that you can get muddy.

    Get your hike on! It's well worth it. Wear shoes that you don't mind getting a bit mucky. Otherwise, mud dried and comes off easily- just do the hike!

    Walk across bridge and past steps down to the left. Bear right and go down the back steps. After all the steps, the sidewalk flattens out. An “Area Closed” sign marks the trail Stay right at all forks

    Read the signs near the restrooms for the map, read the signs at the top for phallic history, show a Hawai‘i ID for free parking, and read the Foursquare tips for the secret path.

    Take a walk through the garden, up to view the "Needle". Deep your toes in Iao stream on hot days, just be sure to heed all park safety signs.

    If you're willing to, avoid the signs and venture the dirt paths at your own risk.

    Amazing views, very easy hike. No rain when we went. A great place to check out while renting a motorcycle.

    Parking is 5 bucks. Kaamaina parking is free with hawaii id.

    The warning signs are basically a wink to venture further. There's so much more to explore, especially after going so far out of the way. Ignore the railings and signs. So worth it
