Rainbow Falls, Hilo

The Big Island, Hawaii, United States


Rainbow Falls is an easy place to sightsee! You just drive up, walk a short paved path, and there it is! A beautiful waterfall! There are flowers and green grass. To your right you can walk up a ramp for a view from a different angle. To your left, climb some steps and you come to a forest with amazing tree roots straight out of a movie! 
Extend your sightseeing by driving five minutes west to Boiling Pots, another waterfall lookout.
These lookouts are in a nice neighborhood. It feels good to get up in the hills above Hilo town and away from the ugly downtown area.
