  • This place looks incredible! It's part of a national park, so there is a charge to get in if you don't have a park pass. Entry though allows you to do the bamboo forest hike. Now for the pools. My group really wanted to swim in them, but they were closed when we got there. Not sure if they update whether it will be closed online or not, but kind of wish we had known that ahead of time. Probably would've spent a little more time at other stops on the Road to Hana.
  • Don't rush your trip! Your on island time. Stop, stop and stop to smell the roses (actually plumeria). Beautiful waterfalls and good moving mountainous stream. Flow will vary with recent rainfalls Flow will vary and obviously very dependent upon rainfall. Don't be disappointed just come back again during your stay.
