What a beautiful waterfall and walkway! The long path is well done and not too difficult. It does have some steep inclines and stairs, but you don’t need full hiking gear for it.
The parking situation is interesting - if you park outside the gate, you pay $1 per person to get in. If you park inside the gate (maybe 10 or so) spots, you have to pay $5. There were a couple of men sitting at the path entrance to collect the money.

Perfect place for anyone who doesn't have that much time to waste on the island. I thought this one was really pretty, the hike is too easy with some stairs.

Absolutely beautiful! There is quite a trek but luckily it’s paved and there are rails if you need to hold on. The falls are absolutely stunning.

Totally paved and well maintained, there’s no excuse to skip this marvelous wonder of nature. The 442’ falls alongside of other falls, is a short hike away (with many stairs). Park along the road and walk < 1/4 mile to save a $5 parking fee. Only a few minutes from Hilo, and $1pp entry fee, you won’t regret it.

OK, if you are looking for a short hike. Not mind blowing if you hike alot. Nice that it was paved and concrete stairs as opposed to lava.
