Hiilawe Waterfall (or Hi'ilawe Waterfall) is one of the tallest and most powerful waterfalls in Hawaii located on the Big Island. The waterfall drops about 1,450 feet (442m) with a main drop of 1,201 feet (366m), into Waipio Valley on Lalakea Stream.[1] Lalakea Stream above the falls has been diverted for irrigation purposes so the falls can be dry even during the wet spring in March.[2]
