If your hope is to swim in one of the picturesque Hawaiian waterfalls that you see in professional photos then this may not be the place for you (depending on the time of year). In the summer it is the dry season and the water...More
This is one of those spots that you feel all alone with nature. The gardens are well maintained and you walk at your leisure to enjoy the plants, trees, flowers and wildlife. We spent about 2 hours walking to and from the waterfall. The path...More
I asked but I was given no information about guided tour or scheduled activities. I actually had "maybes" answers like "there eight be a guided tour in one hour if you want to wait and chance it" or "for activities go walk and ask someone...More
This is a fantastic, very informative walk. You walk downhill from the top on a wide, paved path, with several side pathways. The flora is clearly labeled and color coded. The structures are also labeled with an explanation of the purpose of each (even how...More
It is a short, relaxing hike to the falls. On your way, you see a lot of different plants, trees and flowers. The path is generally shaded and there is no incline. At the end, the is a small waterfall and a place to go...More

We bought our tickets upon arrival with no problem. It wasn’t very crowded. We probably got there around 10am. As a side note, Google maps takes you past the entrance up a huge hill to a neighborhood. You actually will pass the entrance to the park on your way. The entrance is clearly marked but I had so much faith in Google maps I ignored it 😂.

I would think you can bring whatever you want within reason. There are plenty of open spaces to spread out and have a picnic. I don’t think it would be practical to haul a big cooler up to the falls themselves though as it’s all up hill. It’s a lovely day out, hope you enjoy it.
