About 4 miles out of Lihue up a narrow, winding paved road. Small parking lot at end. Falls are beautiful and there is a large pool at the bottom. No "official" access to pool but apparently you can climb down a steep path a couple of turnoff's back and hike up. Haven't tried it so don't know how dangerous it is. State needs to cut the tall grass behind the protective railing as it impedes the view of the bottom of the falls. Definitely worth a trip out from Lihue.

A quick 10 minute drive off the highway.
Went during peak season,and parking was fine.
My pics will speak for themselves.. Just amazing.
And I live on Maui and was very impressed.
Just wow. This is what Kauai is about.

These twin water falls we're amazing. Parking might be limited during peak season, though. I many rate these falls as among the best on the island.

These falls are easy to get to and then to see. Parking can be a bit tight depending how many people are there. The falls itself are just gorgeous. There were people who had hiked to the falls we could see. Not sure if its a true trail. You can always catch a rainbow there if the sun is out!

Easily accessible because you can drive right up but it is kind of hard to see from the street. There is a hiking trail down, but it is blocked off (probably for safety reasons) and we were told it was very steep in the beginning. There is actually a rope on the ground. We did not go down, but some other people did that did not seem to be in particularly great shape, but others also turned back.,
