No real hike. There are people who go outside the boundaries but it doesn't seem worth it.

We love waterfalls. We hike to as many as possible, so when we saw these, of course we had to go have a look.

The Good:
- Nice falls. These were beautiful to look at
- Full because of rain. It is possible that during dry seasons they will not be so beautiful.
- Great view!

The Not So Good:
- Bad railings will let people fall
- Area closed to walk down there so no exploring or getting close
- Disappointment
- 3 for the view
- 1 for the adventure

Bottom Line: This place could be better if only we could hike closer to the falls. But they have blocked off most of the area so you can't get very adventurous with kids. So, good to look at once, but I could skip it next time I go to the big island.
