:Pleasant self-guided walk through lush tropical vegetation to scenic vista points overlooking the cascading Kahuna Falls and the free-falling Akaka Falls , which plunges 442 feet into a stream-eroded gorge. The 0.4-mile loop footpath requires some physical exertion.

Easy and beautiful. 5/5

Super easy paved walk way to both waterfalls

Beautiful falls! Only four stars because the entire trail is paved and we don't count those as "real" trails. :) Much of the trail is up and down on stairs but plenty of level paths in between to catch your breath. Not much parking. $1 per person entry fee if you park on the road and not their parking lot.

Cool views!

The park has been closed to all visitors due to trail erosion

Short paved path with nice views of the waterfall and flora. Sometimes pretty crowded with tourists, some stairs, but nothing challenging. Definitely worth seeing if you are on the Hilo side of the island.

Beautiful walk and falls (Akaka & Kahuna). There is a $5 State Park fee for the carpark, however the trail is so well maintained and beautiful that it is totally worth it. The scenery is absotutely beautiful and it is an easy walk.
