'Opaeka'a Falls at Wailua River State Park in Wailua Homesteads, Hawaii (Kauai) is an easy 0.1-mile out-and-back paved/universal access trail that leads to a vista point of Opaekaa Falls.

This is not a hike, but rather a short walk along a paved trail that leads to a view of 'Opaeka'a Falls. 'Opaeka'a Falls spills into the Wailua River, but there's not public access that leads to the base of the waterfall, so visitors can appreciate its beauty from this downstream vista.

Visitors will find a large parking lot at the coordinates provided. The lot is large enough for just over a dozen vehicles.

As of June 2022, there are restroom facilities at the parking lot.

Respecting the Land
Hawaiian land is considered sacred to native Hawaiians and many locals, so please stay on-trail, take nothing but photos, and leave nothing but footprints. Respect the locals - don't stay for long and have a backup hike planned in case the parking lot is full.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
