Of all the amazing views and breathtaking waterfalls in Kauai this was just average. It was worth walking across the street and seeing the view of the valley and river below. If you have time go see it, if not you won't be missing much if you were to skip it.

We drove here on our first day. It is a quick drive and there is a good paved parking lot there. Got some nice shots, and there are enough people here to take photos of your group. There is a small path that leads to another overlook of the river valley. Chickens o'plenty.

Beautiful falls that you can drive up and see without a hike-very accessible. Parking can be a bit limited but since people are constantly coming and going after taking a few photos you should be OK. It had been raining and was even raining while we visited so the water coming over the falls was quite significant.

Definitely worth a quick stop when you are on the east side. One of the nicer falls we saw on the island from the ground.

Nice waterfalls. It's worth seeing, even if you've seen lots of other ones.

It's also good to visit the Kamokila village and go for a kayak, which you can see the entrance to from the waterfalls lookout.

Very beautiful and you drive right up to them. No walking necessary. Parking is abundant and free. Do it!
