“good pictures”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

this was a good spot for pictures. i thought we would see more waterfalls in hawaii, but most were hard to get to. This one was easy, not a huge waterfall, but still good for pictures.

“Typical Waterfall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Typical waterfall. You get a better show after a little rain. It was part of the circle island tour I took. Itwas just what it was. A beautiful place to take pictures of a waterfall.

“Pretty, but dry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is probably a beautiful waterfall, when it's the wet season. It is easy to find and get to.....just up a hill from downtown Hilo. It hadn't rained to much when we went, so the falls were barely a trickle, but it was a nice, free park and there was a small hiking trail for a better look, even though we didn't go on it.

“Great little park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Very quiet park and great view. Without hiking, a better view than Akaka Falls. No fee to park. Clean restrooms

“Waterless Falls”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

A 2-day drought was evident at Rainbow Falls. There was no water flowing over the falls. I have visited Rainbow Falls many times but this visit was a first due to the lack of water. Upstream is Boiling Pots...also very dry.
