ʻAkaka Falls Loop Trail
|Trail Length||0.4 mile loop|
|Elevation Gain||100 ft|
|Park Name||ʻAkaka Falls State Park|
This is a pleasant self-guided walk through lush tropical vegetation to scenic vista points overlooking the cascading Kahuna Falls and the free-falling ‘Akaka Falls, which plunges 442 feet into a stream-eroded gorge. The 0.4-mile loop footpath requires some physical exertion. This is a good family walk. Allow 1/2 hour for the full loop.
The trailhead is located just off the parking lot. The paved route, which includes multiple steps in places (not wheelchair accessible), makes an easy to follow loop offering stunning viewpoints of the two waterfalls. To view ‘Akaka Falls only, take the path to the left (south) from the first junction. The waterfall view is just a short walk down the path.
End of ‘Akaka Falls Road (Highway 220), 3.6 miles southwest of Honomu.
