    Wow! Akaka falls is stunning especially after a good rain storm. Very easy hike to lookout. Don’t bother with Kahana falls. Not much to see.

    Definitely worth the really short hike down to see. You also see nice plant life as well!
  • Jessica P.
    A quick stop! Don't have to hike very far to reach. And the entire way is paved.

    Absolutely worth the drive. Take the four mile "scenic route" on the way. Stop at the botanical gardens. All worth it.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

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