The wide falls here may not be as impressive as the taller ones on Princeville Ranch, but the swimming hole is equally refreshing and the scenery just as stimulating. The 300-acre ranch in Kalihiwai Valley features an 80-acre tropical garden and close-up views of the 2,800-foot-tall Makaleha Range. The 2-hour Silver Falls Ride ($119) includes a barbecue picnic that’s a cut above the usual sandwich fare, plus a dip in the waterfall pool, while the 90-minute Hawaiian Discovery Ride ($99) follows flower-lined streams through the garden, home to more than 150 species of palms. Combine the two itineraries on the 3-hour Tropical Trail Adventure ($139). All rides are open to ages 7 and up; private rides and rides for children ages 5 and 6 are also available, for surcharges ranging from $40 to $115 per ride.
