Akaka Falls State Park

Highway 220

Pleasant self-guided walk through lush tropical vegetation to scenic vista points overlooking the cascading Kahuna Falls and the free-falling 'Akaka Falls, which plunges 442 feet into a stream-eroded gorge. The 0.4-mile loop footpath requires some physical exertion. (65.4 acres).

One of the most beautiful falls I've ever seen. For sure the best one in Hawaii! There is a short and nice walk from the parking lot to the fall. The area around the fall is set up with chairs and tables, perfect setting for a picnic. I loved the country side roads, farms and the views from up top. This waterfall topped all of the others that I've seen in Hawaii.

Cool spot to check out at least once. It's very hard getting to the top or bottom of this waterfall, but its so much cooler if you can make it. They started charging $5 for parking and $1 to walk the trail. I'll usually park before the gate or just say I did to save five bucks. Also, I've seen credit cards get stuck in the machine at the beginning of the trail...Bring cash!

Two beautiful falls along a scenic paved walk that has a bunch of stairs. Akaka Falls is 442 high. Much higher than Niagara Falls at 176 feet. Kahuna Falls is barely visible as the viewing point and the falls are overgrown with vegetation. The walk is well worth the $1 entrance fee (if you park on the road outside of the park) or $5 if you park inside the park.

A nice pit stop on the island. The parking lot is small so you might not be able to find a spot to park. It has a good lookout for photos and it’s a beautiful sight to see. A little bit of a walk to get to the falls, but it is paved and easy.

Beautiful scenery with an amazing water fall to photograph. The trail is fairly easy for those in decent cardio health. There are a lot of stairs and ups and downs. The trail is mostly paved. Even some hidden falls along the way. Kahuna falls viewing area is mostly overgrown and hard to see. Park outside of the park and walk in to save a few bucks. $5 to park in the park $1 to park outside the park and walk in
