ʻAkaka Falls State Park
Chasing waterfalls is a favorite pass time for me. I believe it should be the same for you too! Nature’s awesome splendor!
Akaka Falls State Park offers great views of a 442-foot waterfall (and nearby Kahuna Falls) along a half-mile, paved scenic path. You pay to park, or pay a per-person entry fee (you can park just outside of the park for free). Stop at Mr. Ed’s or Hilo Sharks Café in Honomu before or after your trip…
Nice drive to the falls along the Hamakua Coast. Trail is not rigorous but bring water. Plants and view of falls are spectacular.
Akaka Falls State Park is a nice hike on paved trails, and a good, nearby activity no matter what the weather. Native ferns, large banyan trees.
A self-guided, 0.4-mile hike through dense tropical vegetation offers vistas of two magnificent waterfalls: Kahuna Falls; and the 442-feet Akaka Falls.
When driving around the north side of the island on the way to Hilo from Kona, you’ll find the glorious ‘Akaka Falls. This waterfall is a huge payoff for just a short walk down a trail from the parking lot, so don’t miss out on this one. ‘Akaka Falls is a whopping 442 feet tall! The full hike around…
