Great roadside overlook. There is also a viewing area of the valley and ocean across the street. Easy access and ample parking.

Easy and quick to visit another beautiful waterfall on Kauai.Off the 56 take the 580 near Lydgate State Park to the Falls. There is a clearly marked sign. Depending upon the rainfall it may be a little disappointing. There are restroom facilities in the area.

Opaekaa Falls is a short drive off the main highway and convenient to the parking area. Beautiful scenery and falls.

This waterfall can easily be seen from the footpath alongside the road. We were lucky that there had been some rain a few days earlier making the falls more spectacular.

It was a cute enough waterfall on the way up the road. We didn't make a special trip or anything, nor would I recommend going out of your way (especially if you've seen Wailua Falls or Hanakapi'ai Falls already). There were a LOT of gnats...More

We took a quick stop here and it was beautiful. Something quick to see if you have time. You just park and you can see it from the parks lot or walk to the overlook. Very beautiful scenery.

This waterfall was nice. But it wasn't as good as Wailua waterfall . One can view from the road, but the waterfall is ways off. Not able to get close.

This waterfall scene is easily viewed from the parking lot. It is a pretty sight and an easy drive to take.
