“the trail to the hidden water slide!”

Hiking through steamy forests, through pitch black, waterlogged tunnels, and alongside narrow, and incredibly tall cliffs seems pretty intense, but the reward at the end of this dangerous trail is too good to pass up-- the world's most gorgeous hidden flume water slide. Located in Hawaii's Waipio Valley, to get there, head to the Flume Water Slide Trailhead  at the end of White Road just outside of Waimea-- there, apparently, there will be a wooden gate that leads to the trail. Along the way, you'll pass hidden waterfalls and breathtaking overlooks offering views of the Waipio Valley. To get to the slide, you have to hike through a tunnel for about half a mile before you arrive at your destination. Once you reach the slide, grab ahold of the rope and climb up through the rushing water to the top, then get ready for the ride of a lifetime! You can even bring along an inner tube to inflate when you reach your destination for a smoother ride down. The hike is off-limits unless you're granted special permission, but it's worth the trouble if it means getting to visit the one-of-a-kind slide. This video gives you an idea of the crazy path to the flume-- and an idea of just how insanely incredible it is to slide down! -Roadtrippers Hiking through steamy forests, through pitch black, waterlogged tunnels, and alongside narrow, and incredibly tall cliffs seems pretty intense, but the reward at the end of this dangerous trail is too good to pass up-- the world's most gorgeous hidden flume water slide.

The trail that begins at the end of White Road takes you past hidden waterfalls, across pipes and bridges, to soaring overlooks of the Waipio Valley, through dark, damp tunnels, and ultimately to one of the most insanely awesome hidden flume water slides ever. Remember to pack an inner tube! Be aware that the hike can be dangerous, and if you're not surefooted or otherwise incapacitated, this may not be the hike for you.

Pretty sure this is just like Hawaii's Stairway To Heaven Trail --- you're not allowed to go there, legally.
