Description

The Canyon Trail winds along the canyon rim. I stopped at a picnic bench for a great view and snacks. This bench unexpectedly appears and must have been helicoptered in. Its a great place for pictures and quiet reflection.

Past the bench you'll see Waipo'o Falls and then likely more people hiking form Puu Hinahina lookout to go to the falls. The water flow from Kokee stream can change and with it the gushing of the 800 foot falls and the more challenging crossing of the stream. Once across the stream, it's a slippery climb to the junction of the Halemanu-Kokee Trail.
