The Mahua substation is in the north of the Crocker range national park in the Tambunan district, about 14km from Tambunan. To access it, visitors drive from Tambunan towards Ranau and turn left at the Kampung Patau junction. From there it is a 6km drive along a narrow and steep mountain road. Faciities are rather basic and include a parking area, an administration building and a security gate. From the parking area there is a short, 500m trail in very good condition to the Mahua waterfall. The trail crosses pristine rainforest to reach the beautiful Mahua waterfall (17m tall). Basic shelters and picnic facilities are available near the waterfall. Rafflesias grow at the Mahua substation.
