The Floral Adventures of Akaka Falls on Big Island

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

After our exhilerating ziplining adventure on Labor Day, we decided to visit Akaka Falls. I suppose it's possible that trip could have been the plan all along but I only first heard of it after the 8 ziplines. Vika said she and Josh missed the falls during their last trip here because it was closed. I rarely turn down an opportunity to visit a state park, even those I've seen before because you always see something new.

Akaka Falls is one of those must-see tourist attractions on Big Island. It features an optional loop trip to see two big waterfalls and a few smaller waterfalls, while you're climbing and ascending stairs, strolling along a path. You hear all sorts of exotic bird mating calls. Your eyes can't possibly asborb all that you see.

However, you can read more and see a lot more photographs at this link in my personal blog today: Photos of Flowers and Ferns at Akaka Falls in Honomu.

Thanks for sharing your exploration! I haven’t been to the Big Island but looks like it should be on the list of things for us to do someday.

Wow, zip lining, cliff jumping - you're on a roll!

My parents lived in Hilo during the late 1980s/early 1990s. I'm sure I have a photo of Akaka Falls somewhere. What a gorgeous island!

I also have a photo somewhere of the volcano erupting. I should dig those out.
