Umauma Falls

Umauma Falls, Big Island

Located about 16 miles (26 km) north of Hilo, Umauma Falls (see more photos) is a beautiful three-tiered waterfall with a cumulative height of about 300 feet (90 m). This waterfall used to be accessible via the World Botanical Gardens, but there was a change of management at World Botanical Gardens and in 2008, the Umauma Falls lookout point and its surrounding 90 acres were sold to Umauma Experience, a company that also operates a zip-line. So now the waterfall is accessible only through the Umauma Experience (admission cost to view the waterfall is $6).
