“Beautiful Falls”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Always nice to see the falls freely falling and hearing them crashing thunderously to the bottom. They are best seen in the early morning when the east light throws the rainbow over them.

“Beautiful Waterfall”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

Close to Hilo. We went in the morning and saw the rainbow. If you can, wait out the crowds from the bus, they usually leave after a couple of minutes. Boiling Pots is just down the road and you can do both in a short amount of time.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

They say to arrive first thing in the morning if you want to see the rainbow--we missed it. Still beautiful. If you can, be sure to take the short hike up through the banyan trees. Takes you up to the top of the falls where you can walk out if you are brave enough.

“Easy walk to this tropical waterfall”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

The overlook is only a dozen yards or so from parking lot. I was there just after a rain downpour, and the falls were spectacular as they crashed down. Lush tropical surroundings add to the scenery. No fee to visit.
