I had an opportunity recently to enjoy an easy hike at a gorgeous spot near the Hamakua Coast, a lovely drive along the highway, and a stop in Honokaa at Tex's drive in for some hot malasada's, Yumm!

There are some stairs to go up and down and easy paved trails to get to the waterfalls to view these incredible water falls and all the flora and fauna along the way.

Everything was so lush and green, wow!

Then on the way home a stop in Honokaa at Tex's Drive  In, a hot malasada hit the spot. You have to be patient and wait, because they make them fresh, put the filling in just out of the fryer and serve them to you still warm, what a treat. You can fill them with your choice of filling, what is being offered that day, could be mango, bavarian creme, chocolate, apple....you even get to watch them being made behind the huge windows. The burgers and fish sandwiches are good, always satisfied upon leaving.

At Akaka Falls State Park, located along the northeastern Hamakua Coast, you can see two gorgeous waterfalls on one short hike. The pleasant 0.4-mile uphill hike will take you through a lush rainforest filled with wild orchids, bamboo groves and draping ferns.

As you follow the paved footpath, you'll first see 100-foot Kahuna Falls. Continue to follow the loop around the bend, and you'll discover towering Akaka Falls which plummets 442-feet into a stream-eroded gorge. Beautiful Akaka Falls is perhaps Hawaii Island's most famous waterfall. Easily accessible, this hike takes less than an hour.

Thanks to gohawaii.com for this info.
