Quick drive up to the lookout access was perfect for a scenic tour on our first day on the island! Major plus, was it didn't require any hiking! You can walk up along the fenced in sidewalk to get a better look, and cross over...More

If you are going to falls to get a good picture too, note that most of the photos were taken with a zoom lens. The viewing spot is right off the road, behind a low fence.

This was an easy stop and no hiking. You can cross the road and see a pretty valley and Hawaiian village & river also.

Another stunning water fall that can be seen with little to no effort. Plenty of parking. Some overgrowth but can appreciate falls from a few different angles.
