Along the lower reach of the longest river in the Island of Hawai'i, the Wailuku River, lies a scenic state park with two of the most beautiful waterfalls in Hilo and a stunning hiking trail. The first waterfall you will come across in the park is the Rainbow Falls, which fall from a height of 80 feet. The waterfall is named so due to the way light reflects upon the falls during morning time, creating a luminescent rainbow effect. Further along the trail, you will come across the Peepee Falls, which are source for the famous pools known as Boiling Pots. These bowl-shaped depressions in the rock of the river seem like they boil when water flow is heavy. This park is a must-visit while in Hilo.
