First of all, the waterfalls are on private property, so you'll have to pay $10 just for admission (but kids under 12 are free!) There's an excursion company on-site that offers ziplining adventures or a giant swing experience, if those are excursions that you are interested in. However, I've ziplined in Costa Rica, Alaska, and Puerto Vallarta before, and this... More

Don't bother with this park, it is a waste of money. The falls them selves were nice & picturesque but the activities/walking trails were terrible and led to nowhere, as well as half of the path blocked off with tape & rainforest debri. We did not do the zipline as it looked like a waste of money with barely an... More

We found this falls very difficult to find but oh it is so beautiful. Also you can drive right up to it so for anyone with accessibility issues its very easy for them to view.

A hidden gem, you can skip the zipline tour and pay the $10 to access the gardens and see the falls itself, which is definitely one of the prettiest falls I have seen

We were driving to Hilo and saw this on the map and decided to stop by for a look and hike. First, it is on private land, and they charge $10.00 to go "see" it. They have a 'Peace Garden" that you can hike to. We had 7 members in our party, one being under 12, so no charge. We... More

I hate that I had to pay to see this waterfall but it was worth it! It was raining the day we went but that didn't matter. I got some awesome pictures and I even got one put on canvas and it turned out amazing! I can't tell you about the ziplining but the falls are worth a stop!

We've done several zip lines around the U.S. and Canada but this has 9 runs along beautiful waterfalls and pools. One running is 1/4 mile long. Staff were uber friendly and focused on safety. One in our group was afraid of heights but had a fantastic time. Approx. 1.5 hours of fun and awe.

We did the 9-zip zipline at The Umauma Experience. Neither of us had done a zipline before, and the three guides were fantastic with the whole group. They seemed to enjoy what they were doing and wanted to make sure everyone doing the ziplines was also enjoying it. Definitely recommend!

We got lost driving in the area and stopped at the information building for the zip line attraction. A very helpful girl told us we could ride up to see the falls. Wow! One of the most scenic spots on the island.
