Akaka Falls



Mahalo to Susan Bramm- Edmonton, Canada

* Akaka Falls State Park is located off the Belt Rd. just North of Hilo.
* The falls can be viewed after a short 15 minute hike. You can "turn left" to head straight to Akaka falls, or go right for a slightly longer hike past smaller Kahuna falls (most people skip this but it's a nice walk).
* Akaka Falls is 429 Feet (129 meters) tall.
* Entrance Fee: $5.00 per car for parking (free parking along the road just outside park gates); $1 per person entrance fee. No parking or entrance charge for Hawaii residents.
* The park has restrooms and drinking water at the trail head.
* The charming town of Honomu (en route) is also good sightseeing.
