ʻOpaekaʻa Falls Lookout information
While not a showstopper, these 150ft-high waterfalls make for an easy roadside stop, less than 2 miles up Kumaoʻo Rd. For the best photographs, go in the morning. Don’t be tempted to try trailblazing to the base of the falls. These steep cliffs are perilous and have caused fatalities. Cross the road for a fantastic photo op of the Wailua River.
