This area contains 6 potholes ”where the raging Wailuku
River, which means “waters of destruction ”drops from
one pool into another. The pots appear like steamy Jacuzzis where
the water runs through lava tubes under the ground and then bubbles
up to the surface. Look to your right, and you can see Pe’e
Pe’e Falls, a wondrous waterfall. There is a path to the right
when on the viewing platform that you can take to get a closer look.
