Nanue Falls – Hawaii Big Island – Epic Trip Adventures


The hike to Nanue Falls is very short and only 18 miles north of Hilo. Although this hike is short and doesn’t require much time, it is challenging as there is no trail and you must rock hop along slippery boulders up the creek. Our guide contains essential driving and hiking directions to reach Nanue Falls.
