This is a great excursion for families with a nice and safe walking trail. It is also a short drive from Hilo.

impressive and a very quick, easy and affordable thing to do. We really enjoyed it and caught it when almost no one was there so we really got to enjoy the view. Easy short walk.

This falls has over 10000 plants brought in from all over the east and it is a simple and wonderful walk to the falls and well worth the time spent. Moderate fee

Walk a short loop with beautiful flora to a beautiful waterfall. Small fee to park. Paved path, easy walk, some stairs.

Most accessible falls I have ever been to, you can actually see these from the parking lot. There is a small fee to get in, which you can pay by credit/debit card, 5 dollars if you park 1 dollar each person if you walk in. We parked just outside the gate which was litterally outside the tiny parking lot and walked in. Great loop to walk around to see two waterfalls, lots of tropical plants to look at a huge banyan tree and lots of tall bamboo plants to look at. Nice walkway with sturdy hand rails for those who have a hard time walking. There are some stairs, so the whole route may not be doable for all persons. Also there is a fruit stand on the way up to the falls on the side of the road on the right that is awesome. It's run by a friendly guy who let us try a bunch of stuff including white pineapple and had whole coconuts to buy to drink coconut water from. Must stop while visiting the falls!
