Viewpoints of geologic and scenic interest along Wailuku River. Boiling Pots is a succession of big pools connected by underground flow or cascades and whose waters roll and bubble as if boiling. The exposed hexagonal columns that line the pools were formed by the slow cooling of basalt lava. The 80-foot Rainbow Falls is renowned for the rainbow formed from its mist many mornings. Legends say that the cave beneath the waterfall was the home of Hina, mother of the demigod Maui.

Beautiful falls ! You just need to park the car and enjoy them ! You should go around 9am because the sun rises just at the good spot to see rainbows !

Gorgeous, pungent white ginger lines the trail up to the top of the falls. Super easy to navigate. Make sure to bring reef shoes, and a bathing suit so you can wade in the pools at the top of the falls. I was bummed that I wasn't prepared.

Hot and crowded, but still...it Hawaii

beautiful falls,go off trail and you'll find a spot were you can go swimming,water had deep spot as well as many sallow spot.if you do go off trail there's another wonderful water full behind but you have to cross the water and climb the rock to see it.a vine area some locals were swinging off of to the water.

Not a hike but still definitely worth going. Short walk to the top where you can stand on top of the waterfall. In addition to the waterfall there were awesome trees.

Really just a pretty picture with a short walk from be parking lot to the edge of the waterfall. It's not a hike and not even the best waterfall I've seen in Hawaii.

Unfortunately was only able to view the waterfall. Didn't have enough time explore the whole trail, but great view!

Made a great picture.

Rainbow Falls is a easy trail, you can park (free) and walk up straight to see the waterfall. After, a few pictures you can walk up the stairs to get a view from the top of the fall. Walk around the top and continue on down if you'd like. A must see!

Walked from down town thru the park and back. Nice area with really cool bridges.
