    It's $5.00 per vehicle and $1.00 per person. If you park outside the gate you save $5.00. The view is amazing and the foliage as well

    Очень красиво!

  • Brittney K.

    Beautiful place for a walk around picturesque Hawaii. Take the full circle walk: it's a battle for your booty with all the steps, but oh, so gorgeous.

    Long drive from Kona for about 20 minute walk to view falls. Can not access water at all

    Nice easy hike, don't sweat it

    Take a poncho! Or an umbrella... At least if you visit in fall/winter, you WILL get rained on. There is a hit near the upper falls to hide from the rain too.

    Nice mild hike for you and the kids. Great views!

    Do the whole circle if you are in shape, amazing trees, but if you are in a hurry go straight to Akaka falls and skip the lower falls

    Do the route in reverse if you just want to see Akaka, then change your mind. It is relatively easy if you can handle steps. Cruise line filled with 55+ year-olds managed it today while I was there.

    Took us about 20-25 minutes to walk the loop in flip flops. Beautiful falls, especially Akaka Falls.

    Angela Chase · June 14, 2012
  • Roger J.

    Worth the 15 minute walk each way. Two falls to see.

    This place comes from a higher power. Magnificent and out of prehistoric times.

    It's $1 per person outside the lot parking, but they don't really check.

    If hiking uphill is a challenge, take the advice on the sign and hike in a counter-clockwise direction. It will be a little easier at the end, though the trail isn't that tough.

  • Nathan K.

    Parking is $5 if you choose the parking lot...payable by credit card. Or if you want to save a few bucks, park along the roadside.

    I wasn't a fan of Akaka, my girlfriend on the other hand, loves it.

    Every time I sit on the toilet, Akaka Falls.

    Water shoes are good but not necessary. Some ppl wore sandals. It takes about 20 minutes to walk the paved sidewalks.

    Quick walk with great views. Check out the fruit stand at the end of Route 220.

    Park just outside of the park to avoid paying $5 to park your car.

    Heather Edwards · June 26, 2011
  • Michael B.

    If you you have 5 or more people in car, you're better off parking inside, otherwise you save by parking outside the get and walking in. Cost is then $1 per person.

    Michael Blitch · June 4, 2011
  • James P.

    If you park outside the gate and walk in, it's $1 a person. It's free if you have an Hawaiian ID.

    You now have to pay $5 parking - cash only & no change given.

    Kristen J · December 15, 2010
  • Kent K.

    The suggested route is a bit longer but with more to see. You can take the shorter route back.
