The flora represented in Waimea Valley is overwhelming! Honestly, one could spend weeks viewing the amazing variety of plants from all over the world. When water flows return to normal, the waterfall and pool below are an outstanding activity for children. Well worth the price...More

The walk was long but beautiful. There are many paths to choose but the waterfall path is marked. The waterfall was worth the walk! So peaceful and relaxing. Well worth the walk!

Aloha and thank you for your interest in Waimea Valley. The walk to the waterfall is 3/4 mile on a paved road. Take around 20-35 minutes. With young children I would plan on 40 to 45 minutes. The path is stroller friendly... More
