Foursquare Tips

  • Walk the whole trail it's magical.
  • Took us about 20-25 minutes to walk the loop in flip flops. Beautiful falls, especially Akaka Falls.
  • If you you have 5 or more people in car, you're better off parking inside, otherwise you save by parking outside the get and walking in. Cost is then $1 per person.
  • It's $1 per person outside the lot parking, but they don't really check.
  • If you park outside the gate and walk in, it's $1 a person. It's free if you have an Hawaiian ID.
  • You now have to pay $5 parking - cash only & no change given.
  • w
  • Take a poncho! Or an umbrella... At least if you visit in fall/winter, you WILL get rained on. There is a hit near the upper falls to hide from the rain too.
  • Do the whole circle if you are in shape, amazing trees, but if you are in a hurry go straight to Akaka falls and skip the lower falls
  • Opens at 0830. $5 to park or $1 a person. Credit card. license plate number needed.
  • This place comes from a higher power. Magnificent and out of prehistoric times.
  • If hiking uphill is a challenge, take the advice on the sign and hike in a counter-clockwise direction. It will be a little easier at the end, though the trail isn't that tough.
  • Parking is $5 if you choose the parking lot...payable by credit card. Or if you want to save a few bucks, park along the roadside.
  • I wasn't a fan of Akaka, my girlfriend on the other hand, loves it.
  • So beautiful and huge... ^^
  • Definitely worth the really short hike down to see. You also see nice plant life as well!
  • A quick stop! Don't have to hike very far to reach. And the entire way is paved.
  • Absolutely worth the drive. Take the four mile "scenic route" on the way. Stop at the botanical gardens. All worth it.
  • Beautiful Akaka Falls is just four miles from Hakalau Vacation Rental.
  • Trails to two falls. Worth the walk.
