The Makaleha Mountains are immediately north and west of the town of Kapaa and are often drenched by a number of rainstorms. However, it has an abundance of rock that receives direct sunlight and dries quickly.

Getting There 

The Makaleha Falls hike is a popular tourist attraction and will take you to the base of the range. The hike is about 1.5 hours of strenuous hiking with difficult trail finding for first timers.
