    Akaka Falls State Park

    by dinhyen Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Diving 420 feet before crashing in a thunderous roar, Akaka Falls is surely an awesome sight to be hold. The grounds around the majestic waterfalls is covered by an impossibly lush layer of ferns. Akaka's sister falls, Honauma Falls, is nearby. The trail picks its way among luxuriant tropical growth, hanging vines, bamboo groves, and wild orchids. you may be tempted to harken back to a time when dinosaurs still roamed the earth.

    Pe'e Pe'e Falls

    A short drive up the road from Rainbow Falls is Pe'e Pe'e Falls. Judging from the empty parking lot, it probably doesn't get as much exposure as its downstream sister. But it suits us just fine. The falls is far away, but the vista is breathtaking.

    Rainbow Falls is more reminiscent of cafe au lait

    Rainbow Falls is in the vicinity of Hilo. The thunderous falls can throw up a veritable curtain of sprays, providing the background for its namesake. However it was cloudy when we were there, and no rainbows were visible.
