It is a small windy road. It was a nice view. The parking is very limited and you cannot get close to the falls. It is a popular picture taking area. I preferred some of the other stops.

After reading about the falls we were really looking to view and the location was easy to get to. The material you read about gives it more credit than what you really see live when you get there.

Drove to lookout. Good views when sunny. The falls have a perpetual rainbow. Beautiful scenery. You can take a helicopter ride near it for 150$ per person 300$ for the one company that can land on top of the falls.

This is Opaeka'a Falls NOT Ho'olalaea Falls. This gets old when people post things with incorrect names.

The waterfall was very beautiful to see and the drive wasn't that bad so it was well worth it go out of your way to see these falls
