This is an easy stroll along a paved, winding path through a garden of showy tropical blossoms, bamboo groves, and along a pretty stream to an overlook of spectacular Akaka Falls, over 442 feet high. The walk begins at a gap in a low stone wall, where you begin to descend an asphalt stairway to a sign that recommends you walk the trail counterclockwise, beginning to the right. The first waterfall you see across the valley to the north is Kahuna Falls, an extra attraction on this hike. It’s almost as high as Akaka Falls, but is tucked back into a notch in the cliff, and parts of it are obscured by vegetation, so you don’t get as clear a view as you would like.
