Akaka Falls State Park is an easy walk through tropical forest with paved path and stairs for easy accessibility. A treat awaits when you get to the falls. Truly magnificent.
If you're visiting the Big Island and want to see a great waterfall, this is it. It can be seen by most people in relatively good health.
