Hike to Wailua Falls

A few weeks back we posted a picture of Wailua Falls... from the top.  Today, we decided to hike down to the bottom of the falls and go swimming!  The trail started just past the lookout area.  It was unmarked, but luckily there were some people there who pointed us in the right direction.  The trail was steep, and very muddy in one part, but well worth it. 

 Getting closer to the waterfall!

 We made it!

Once we made it to the falls we were ready to go swimming.  The water was cold, but not too bad.  Cory jumped in off of some rocks. We swam all the way across to the waterfall.  We climbed up on a rock ledge right behind the falls!  The wind was blowing the water at us, but we were already soaked so it was okay.  We saw several parrots flying around and a few other people were swimming.  I would definitely recommend this hike to visitors, it was nice and easy but ended with a spectacular view!
