Hope for a Rain­bow at Rain­bow Falls

101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - HILO/HAMAKUA COAST -

There’s a pot of gold at the end of one of Hilo’s ma­jor thor­ough­fares. It’s called Rain­bow Falls, named for the rain­bows that ap­pear when the morn­ing sun shines through the mist.

Take Wai‘anu­enue Drive through Hilo and bear right on Rain­bow Drive. A park­ing lot will be on your right. Make the short walk to a look­out and hope for a rain­bow. There’s no ac­cess to the pond at the base of the falls, so don’t even think about scal­ing the slip­pery slopes to get closer. Use a long lens to take pho­tos in­stead.
