Waimea Falls is located in Haleiwa and 2 miles to the waterfall and back.  This hike is very easy and relaxing.  You will first come to a gift shop and small concession area.  The trail is paved and leads you through a lush tropical jungle and beautiful botanical garden.  Take your time getting to the waterfall.  The plants are all unique and labeled.

There are several historical structures as well.  Each structure has an informational plaque that tells the history and what each was used for.  Walking through should only take 20-30 minutes.  There is another concession area and bathroom before you reach the falls.  Take all the time you want when you reach the end.  There are lifeguards on duty and life jackets for those who want to venture to the falls.
