The beautiful Akaka Falls State Park
Akaka Falls State Park
is located in the northeast of Hamakua coast, northeast of Hawaii's Big Island, about 11 kilometers away from the famous city of Hilo. It is named after Akaka falls in the park. Akaka has the meaning of "splitting and bursting" in Hawaiian language, which means the characteristics of the waterfall, such as male, strange and dangerous.
The pleasant mountain hike is about 0.4 miles (0.6 kilometers) long, traversing a lush rainforest of wild orchids, bamboo forests and ferns.
