Kame’e Creek

kamee creek

Kame’e Creek is a tributary of Hakalau Creek, one of the major watersheds on the Hamakua Coast.  This route drops you down a steep gorge that crashes its way to an eventual, dramatic confluence with Hakalau.  There are 5 major waterfalls including a two tiered, 170 foot plunge and several other quality spots.  This creek, even at low flow, has quite a bit of volume behind it so this is one best done for the dry summer months.  Access to this one is a minor issue and if you research this route you will figure out why.  Natural anchors were easily found in this canyon, bolts are not necessary as there were many anchor options at every drop.  The final drop in this creek is one of the nicer waterfalls on the coast and could technically be accessed by hiking up Hakalau Creek from the park area.
