The kids would probably enjoy the waterfalls portion the most since they can wade in the pool at the base but getting there was a lot more interesting IMO. The botanical gardens are many and lovely. You could spend a lot of time exploring each...More

The only place on Oahu that you can swim at the waterfall. our teenagers loved it. Definately worth going to (Check out Tsue's Farm north shore tour which you can book through Affordable Tours).

Beautiful walk up to the waterfall & pool. Everyone down to my 7-year-old swam in the pool and under the waterfall. Life jackets are required but free.

Enjoyed this a lot more than we expected to. Quite a hike, but go at your own pace. Very inexpensive thing to do and worth it.
