This is one of the most accessible waterfalls in the entire state of Hawaii. It’s short drive outside of Hilo town and is practically next to a local highway. It’s a major tourist attraction with ample parking and wheelchair accessibility. That side of the island is very wet and lush so it’s nearly a guarantee that there will be water flowing. You like? Comments please!

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.
