Waimea Valley Reviews
Jun 09, 2007
If you are a sucker for waterfalls and beautiful scenery like I am, then you must visit the Waimea valley. As you enter, park in one of the many and plenty stalls and then head in to check out the park. If you arrive later in the afternoon it could be difficult to find a parking spot. You will venture past the gift shop which you can always check out after the walk. This gift shop is no different than any other gift shop that is in Hawaii. In other words, anything that you can find in Waikiki at the ABC you can also find here.
There will be a small stop at the building where they will ask for your money...as always. Parking is $2 USD and will be paid here instead of when you park. To enter the park is $8 USD with discounts for children and elderly. Once you pay you will have unlimited access to the park for the day.
The pathway is paved to the Falls but I highly recommend leaving the path onto the many trails that are marked off for you. This will get you up close and personal to many things that you can not find on the paved path. The paved trail is one and one half miles long round trip with only one big hill as I recall. A very comfortable walk. The trail is easy to do with children. As a matter of fact, the children we seen were having lots of fun meandering around the trails.
