If you decide to stop and walk or hike near the waterfalls keep these safety tips in mind:

  • Wear mosquito repellent or you’ll be eaten alive.
  • Park completely off the road.
  • Beware of the irrigation ditches…they have steep sides and if you fall in, you could join others who have died.
  • These waterfalls are in wild territory.  Footing can be treacherous.

Waterfalls are listed in the order you encounter them as you drive into Hana.
