If you have ever seen water falls in the states of OR or WA, then this was a real let down as far as water falls go. Close to the parking lot with a good viewing platform.

Really not impressed by this waterfalls. Some national parks have dozens of waterfalls the size of this waterfalls. Worth a 5 minute stop of you are passing by. Doesn't cost you anything.

Nestled above Hilo Town near the Hilo Medical Center, this little gem is well worth a quick visit. Great photo opportunity for posing with falls in the background. 15 minutes or so is all that's needed.

It's Hawaii as it was years ago! The Big Island is a wonderful place to visit and the friendliest place, not only in the Hawaiian island chain but friendlier than any other place I have been worldwide. This is more natural than Oahu less touristy and beautiful in natural beauty.
