Falls State Park
30 minutes north of Hilo on
HI-19 is a turnoff for Akaka Falls State Park and
the small town of Honomu. The falls are pretty but
my favorite part of the short trail is the walk
through the Giant Yellow Bamboo forest. Bring an
umbrella - this area can get rain at any time.
Recently they have started charging $5 to park or
$1 per person if you walk in. This really is a
special place, especially if you take the extra 20
minutes to do the loop trail.
