Gardens and Waterfalls Self Guided Tour

On a self guided tour, drive to the spectacular Kamaee Falls waterfall. Along the way, you can view exotic palms, banana, kukui and hala trees, and wind your way through hau, hibiscus and native Hawaiian plants on your way back to the lush river walk trail. Wander along the paved and handicapped accessible trail alongside the tumbling Hanapueo Stream as you examine such tropical flowers as ginger, heliconia, green and red jade vine and bamboo beneath a shady canopy of rain forest trees. For the adventuresome, you can walk an additional mile through the unpaved rain forest trail extension to view the wilder portions of the rain forest as well as a variety of spice trees planted along the trail. Returning to the garden's entrance, you can take our paved walkways through the landscaped rainbow walk filled with anthuriums, bromeliads, palms, ti, cinnamon, allspice, the pencil tree and scores of other tropical species. Don't miss the orchid wall and the children's maze. If you still have time, wander at leisure through the grassy lawns of our arboretum to view trees filled with flowers, fruits and nuts. Be sure to look out for the many varieties of orchids blooming in the trees.
