The best-known sight at this 16-acre park is Rainbow Falls, so named because of the rainbows that form at the base when the sun hits the mist. Another sight to see is Boiling Pots. Several large pools bordered by lava-rock columns. The water that flows through the pools appears to be boiling, though it is actually just turmoil caused by the rush of water over rocks. There are numerous other photo opportunities and scenic spots within the park. Hiking trails and restrooms are in the facility.
